Walking Man, Root

A new drawing of Walking Man with some contextual review.  And a traditional tune called The Gobby-O, played by the skin of my teeth on the tenor banjo, with spoons and guitar.

  1. Beautiful to see walking man this morning in all his various guises and roles and tasks…but sadly the music didn’t play for me…will return later and click the arrow again to see if it ‘takes’ on my computer.

  2. Beautiful tune which played for me after I clicked ‘see original.’ Sorry for the double message. Playing metal strings with teeth seems to relate to him becoming a tree somehow. Maybe thorny protrusions? The new drawing is fascinating. The rocks are like veiled women waiting during as he is ‘ crucified’ into a new reality. It’s interesting to see all of the various symbolism you use at play in his journey. One can get lost wondering about the before and after of each image. Thanks a lot for this musical exhibit Jack.

    • Yes, or like attempting something where failure seems imminent at every turning. I hadn’t thought of the rocks as mourners, but now in light of your comment they almost look like I borrowed their shapes from the stony landscape of Giotto’s lamentation. Thank you for the perspective, Steven. I have always been caught up by the witnessing of the stones. I always look forward to your response when I post a new Walking Man picture.

    • Thank you very much for commenting, sabpalmares. I grateful that you like the drawing.

  3. Ah, the walking man walketh. I love this post. He’s been busy as of late, that fellow. Great song too.

  4. Good morning Happy Easter! Thanks for taking some time yesterday to show me around. I must come over again soon.. Jim

    • Thanks, Jim. You’re welcome. I am glad you stopped by, though I am sorry I didn’t have more time. I would value another visit from you soon. Celebrate well the Resurrection.
