August 1989
Lincoln Center Plaza, New York City

Allyson and I, with the help of friends and passers by, laid out 5,500 apples in the shape of the Goddess.

Then Allyson sat at the heart center of the Goddess nursing daughter Zena while I performed one hundred prostrations at the feet of the figure.

The creation of the figure was a ritual acknowledgment of our source of life, the Mother Earth, who nourishes us and whom we must preserve if we are to survive. At day’s end friends assisted us in reboxing the apples which were then donated to a shelter for homeless families.
