When William Anderson published his study of the image of life known in the West as the "Green Man", he foresaw the environmental movement's identification with his subject but not that the "Green Man" should be embraced as it has been, especially in the States, as an icon of the men's movement: a counterpart to the goddess as a symbol of the women's movement. This new work, inspired by the eastern form of the "Green Man" raises questions about the nature of consciousness, the higher capacities of the human mind - and the act of creativity itself. The "Face of Glory" is an Indian image signifying the creative energy of God and this is the starting point of a survey of myths and images as they respond to the needs of humanity. It is further a study of the reservoir of psychic energy known as the "Great Memory" on which creativity draws and of the liberation of consciousness which is the purpose of creativity. It spans centuries of human thought and endeavour, pitting science against art, exploring the experience of joy which rises out of creativity. Anderson views creativity not as the realization of unconscious forces but as a product of consciousness which is the source of freedom.
