Shaper of Forms

It looks like bodies have been half-formed from the molten rock in this amazing photo of a lava skylight. It reminds me of the thoughts I had about the Cailleach (the old goddess) at Sligo in Ireland: “a shaper of forms, working very deep, with the earth and with the living creatures of the earth. The shaper of the mammoth and the mountain. She whom the cave painters addressed.”
