This is another piece in the Axis Mundi Series that seeks to explore the sacred, or at least what we hold to be sacred, in our daily life. The flag itself is a powerful symbol of all that some hold dear in the United States...freedom, rights, liberty, pursuit of happiness...etc. Patriotism is an interesting phenomenon especially from the perspective of religion. Nationalism in many ways becomes its own religion and challenges all others into submission and service to its ideaology.
The antaena is from a home in Saskatchewan and the flag photo is of my parents backyard.
