Title: The Eyes of the Unequaled & Legendary Smith and Craftsman of Clairsentience

Subtitle: The Eyes of Völundr


Here is what I have been up to in the last few days. Something for you to look forward to. I been doing this with photos I have taken, as well as photos of my work and miscellaneous objects.
This is from of photo I have of someone. I cropped and took two very small elements from the photo. I mainly focused on their eyes. The resolution and elements were very small, but from just that I created this wonderful piece. I felt more connected to the idea of Völundr in this piece and the ideas of Clairsentience (feeling/touching). I spent time in the energy of it, all the while listening to music which I felt would inspire the piece even further. The last Volundr piece was a bit spontaneous and it's process went through much quicker. In this one I was patient and developed more skill in the program I am using. The title is symbolic or a reflection of my own skill and craft in creating art. It reflects the amount of detail and precision involved.
I have feelings that perhaps the next one may be based on ninja or samurai energy. I am also in the process of doing one based on a photo or two of my own eyes. Also working on some based on some crystal photos. I also have in store one or two based on Hindu energy.

All will be revealed in good time because there is more. Oh, Yes....More!
Ok now here's an explanation and some wikipedia type facts of interest to all...

In Germanic mythology, Wayland the Smith ( Völundr in Old Norse ) was an unequaled & legendary smith and craftsman. There is more to his myth and story but that's the part I was going for.

Clairsentience (feeling/touching)
In the field of parapsychology, clairsentience is a form of extra-sensory perception wherein a person acquires psychic knowledge primarily by feeling. The word is from the French clair, “clear,” + sentience, “feeling,” and is ultimately derived from the Latin clarus, “clear,” + sentiens, derived from sentire, “to feel”.

In addition to parapsychology, the term also plays a role in some religions. For example: clairsentience is one of the six human special functions mentioned or recorded in Buddhism. It is an ability that can be obtained at advanced meditation level. Generally the term refers to a person who can feel the vibration of other people. There are many different degrees of clairsentience ranging from the perception of diseases of other people to the thoughts or emotions of other people. The ability differs from third eye in that this kind of ability cannot have a vivid picture in the mind. Instead, a very vivid feeling can form.
Psychometry is related to clairsentience. The word stems from psyche and metric, which means "soul-measuring".
