Ancient of Days….is a picture from William Blake. This is my interpretation in cloth.

The inspiration for this cloth came from this poem from William Blake:

O for a voice like thunder, and a tongue

To drown the throat of war!- When the senses

Are shaken, and the soul is driven to madness,

Who can Stand? When the souls of the oppressed

Fight in the troubled air that rages, who can stand?

When the whirlwind of fury comes from the

Throne of God, when the frowns of his countenance drive the nations together,

who can stand?

When Sin claps his broad wings over the battle,

and  sails rejoicing in the flood of Death;

When souls are torn to everlasting fire,

and friends of Hell rejoice upon the slain,

O who can stand? O who hath caused this?

O who can answer at the throne of God?

The Kings and Nobles of the land have done it!

Hear it not, Heaven, thy Ministers have done it!

-William Blake 1757-1827

William Blake was a mystic to me…he was largely self-taught. He wrote poetry, was a painter and so much more.
