The name change is official and henceforth my company will be known as Burning Pine Ltd (rather than Andrew Munro Associates Ltd).
Why Burning Pine?
The image formed before the words.
A wind-carved Japanese Black Pine, tenacious, timeless but vital, touched by a jagged finger of lightning.
There is something wonderfully timeless about trees, amongst which are the oldest living entities on earth. In myth and legend, they symbolise wisdom and a deep, slow but immutable power. In life, they are often restless but always still, always grounded.
In the lightning touch, there is a little bit of Michelangelo’s Creation of Adam and a little bit of the Lightning Struck Tower from the Rider-Waite Tarot; the visceral fear and fascination of the power of nature; the explosive energy of inspiration, of new ideas.
All rendered into life by the talented illustrator, Nicole Urquhart.
In the main, the image represents transformation powered by inspiration. Ideas Words Numbers.
