"The Ovals" by Thomas DeSoto
The Seven Universal Signs "Ovals" tho separately invented have meant the same to ancient civilizations all over the world. Here I tried to unify humanity and nature as one using one of the Seven Universal Signs through composition and framing. The Oval Sign. We live within an Oval when our two eyes cross each other are world is perceived through an oval. Are hands are an oval, our faces are an oval and our body's are an oval. The planets revolve around the sun in an oval. The trees are ovals and their leaves are all ovals. This image was shot on PolaPan instant Black and White slide film. This unique image has not been altered in any way, it appears as it was created. No cropping or enhancement of any kind was used on this image. My hope was to unveil natures true beauty in agreement with nature, for it is the inward and not the outward where natures true beauty lies hidden from man. Triangles, Circles, Ovals,Crosses, Spiral Eights, Angles and The Torus/Hexagons are the Seven Universal Signs that can all be found in nature today. By Thomas DeSoto Director of Photography.
