Field Burning I

Beeswax, ash, cinnamon, and hyssop

I made this when I lived in Tunica, MS.  The farmers regularly burned their fields in the winter, a practice established to help assist the decomposition of fodder, and purportedly to help provide nutrition for the spring planting.  I interpreted this in an allegorical sense to be the way that God occasionally works in His providence.  He does a very hard thing in the life of His people, sometimes as harsh as burning, in order to enable us to have something better at a later point.
