Spanish for “Spirit”, “Espiritu” showcases a symbol used in many of Worrell’s sculptures. The oldest record of this image has been found in petroglyphs in Siberia, and is believed to be 13,000 years old. It is the oldest known symbol for the human soul, and can be found in ancient cultures around the world. The raven is portrayed as effected by various human conditions, thus it is bound, in flight, or at rest.

Bill Worrell

Some say there are no spirits
That death is final
That there is nothing beyond the grave
Or beyond the strewn ashes
Of what we once were

But there are some who know things others do not know
Some know there are Spirits
For they have spoken with them
Spirits have spoken to me
And I have felt their presences

Matter and energy are the same
Only in different states
Matter can be neither created nor destroyed

Thought is energy
Mind gives it birth

Energy is so mistakenly defined as substance
Energy is the product of substance
Light is energy
Thought is energy
These are the Spirit
And cannot be destroyed

We see the Spirit as light
We know it to be real
Yet some deny Spirit existence

Some know what cannot be explained
Espiritu, flies forever
