At the threshold- those unseen, those undone- assemble with the frail paleness of their shadows. Vermilion, bronzes, colors of the sun in the coal fire will not wholly console them. These guardian serves to test the character of those who wish to enter beyond the vestibule and aid their commitment to the journey into the realm of shadows. These characters help guide us across the threshold from this world into otherworldliness. In a world where the masters of greed, corruption and lies take hold…. close your eyes and look to the those who can guide you back to yourself. The friends and familiars of your heart- in the timeless time and the spaceless space. Protective Gargoyles, Psychic Felines and the Mystifying Scales of Reptiles skirt the boundaries of a challenging world. These boundaries keep us from feeling vulnerable and give us dominion over our environments. By banishing what does not benefit us, we make room for what does. In this way, threshold guardians are protective guides embodying willpower, wit and determination.
