Although my avatar has a Sci-Fi look, it's a picture of a tree in Texas. My wife used one of her editors to tweak it a little. She has a unique imagination. I added the frame and white mask, and I also changed the tone of the colors. If you haven't messed around with some of the photo editors out there, you don't know what you're missing...

(Actually, there were four editing apps used in all; Ulead Photo Explorer, Ulead Photo Express, PhotoFiltre and WebBuilder2.) WebBuilder2 is actually a Wysiwyg (what you see is what you get) website designer, but I used it to stretch the squares of the frame into long rectangles, and join them in one image.

My avatar is a stylized interpretation of the Runic symbol "jera"



Is have been my personal symbol for over 20 years and reminds me of the repetitious nature of our lives and the pattern of cycles in all things.

My avatar is the so-called "Tytler Cycle," named after 18th Scottish historian Alexander Tytler, who postualted these steps as a repeating cycle in history. I see it as going beyond the history of nations and standing as a kind of fractal pattern that reproduces itself at all levels of human activity: in individuals, markets, nations, and even phenomena like art, literature, etc. On a personal level, we all go through a similar cycle (if you are athiest you can sustitute something else for spiritual faith, like some kind of hope or dream that gets you fired up.). Not only with money and material goods but with anything.

The cycle in the avatar looks like a kind of crown to me, which is why I chose the byline "heavy lies the crown." It is a heavy, tarnished, imperfect crown, with highlights of spiritual achievement and abudnance, but streaked through also with the darker tones of bondage, apathy, and selfishness. It is the crown we all must wear in this world, as we seek to survive, sometimes achieving great loftiness and sometimes truging through pain and misery. To achieve anything is to wear a crown, but so often the crown comes at the price of great heaviness.

Jupiter has always facinated me and having Earth next to it reminds how small we are in the larger scheme of things.

For a start - I am a highlander, descended from highlanders, who wants to live forever

second I can relate to ol' Connor McCleod in a lot of ways, and I like to fight for what is 'right' not what is popular or convenient at the time

nice idea for a thread OP, thanks

I am fairly sure that mine is self explanatory. Socialists need your money to give you "free" stuff.

Its me rippin up the waves on my skimboard in Galvaston, Tx

pretty self explanitory


Or maybe......just maybe its....... a metaphor of life.
We as man see the power that is nature all around us and since the dawn of man we have tried to take control of it. We make tools, machines, chemicals in a futal effort to master our universe.

And this is just me using a creation of man to be one with nature insted of destroying it.

or maybe it was the first explanation.

Cuervo means "crow" thus the crow. The back drop is the flag for the Republic of Cascadia (where I live).

There are aspects of our lives ,and the universe in general, that are hidden from us because of the way we operate. These things that are right in front of us but our psychology and physiology make it impossible for us to recognize them. We must deduce these things, with logic, from the patterns they make around us.The eye searches for these patterns. Also:

It dark. The deepest part of the sea. The dark side of the moon, but darker still.
The inside of a lead pencil, looked at with blind eyes, after consciousness has long since been sucked out of the brain.

Great question! I've often wondered what certain avatars represent to certain members.
And I can now confirm that my suspicions were correct that Phage is an angry old man. Just kidding Phage, I don't know ya, but you're already my ATS hero ; )

My avatar is the symbol for Loa Maman Brigitte. In the voodoo religion, she is the female death loa and guardian of the cemeteries along with her hubby, Baron Samedi, who is the biggest and baddest voodoo loa of all. She also is depicted with qualities that I feel mirror my own, "blonde hair, green eyes, fair skinned and uses obscenities". She is the only white loa, as far as I know.

What can I say, I fell in love with New Orleans and their culture at a young age. I feel like it is hard coded into my DNA.

I had my favorite loas drawn for me by a priestess in quarter last time I visited. I then had them tattooed down my spine by a local artist. A week later I had a very strange "experience" that I believe was a direct result of the forces I shouldn't have been messing with. I digress...

Maman Brigitte is the one loa that I am missing on my back, so I rep her as my avatar.

I am also fascinated by death and try to study the subject as often as I can. I guess it's a "what nourishes me also destroys me" type of thing.

Thanks for posting, I can't wait to hear more.
