Kindly Forward To Appreciative Friends
My name is Larkin Chollar and I would like
to share with you the origin of my desire to create "The Fountain".
In the spring of 1971 after meeting a profound spiritual challenge, yet being
in a state of mind-blown sadness and grief for beloved friends, I walked out
of the rainy northwest town where I grew up and put my thumb out with just the clothes on my
back. Getting in the warm backseat of a car I closed my eyes and took a deep
breath of relief. I was on my way south to the sun.
Suddenly I was having one of the most remarkable experiences of my life. A
vision. It was totally complete and viewable from any direction. I could zoom
up on areas or view it from a distance. Although, as visions tend to be, it was ineffable, I will try to give you the gist of it.
The vision was of the earth represented as a huge bowl......I saw in the center a
Being holding his arms out in profound beneficent offering. Life-giving water
flowed through his fingers to two lakes below. This central column took my
attention at first, but then I seemed to zoom back to see the whole of life that was
happening in this bowl containing desert, forest and plains.
The bowl formed a large circular arena for life to express itself. On the
outer periphery of the bowl there were people absently gazing off the edge,
milling about or lolling in relaxation. Some were ignoring each other: some
were making it harder for others. In general on the outer edge they all just seemed to
be separate, unquestioning, and unfocused.
Then in the next concentric area towards the center there were people living, helping
each other, building, growing food...being human on Earth. Family scenes,
mothers nursing babies, lovers embracing, farmers farming. Trees, plants and
rocks expressed their gifts to humanity in this area. I saw struggle as well
As I looked towards the center there seemed to be a transition...the next
area in had groups of people sitting down in each of the four directions. In
each group, farthest from the center, but looking toward that amazing central figure,there was a standing person seeming to be a teacher describing for those sitting, what they could see in the center. Now looking closer, I noticed that
those nearest to the center were beginning to curiously look over their
shoulders towards the center for themselves...only to see that others have
risen from the group and are walking towards the center with looks of joy and
a feeling of strength. As they come together in celebration and remembrance,
they begin to spiral up in the air as they move forward.
The bodies spiral around, around and up and up and
then begin to form surrealistic yet beautiful faces and then the larger faces
are spiraling yet further upward in Oneness toward the two powerful male and
female faces on the chest of the OverSoul figure who seems to hold such love
and compassion for all. The arms above are coursed with muscles and veins and the hands
are of great strength and sensitivity.
amazed me with kindness, depth and peaceful power. The face seemed to depict
so many virtues. When seen from the front there was open outward pouring love
and kindness. The left side showed a powerful estheticism that seemed to be
looking just as strongly within. Beneficent is the word that comes closest to
the feeling. Vast love that holds no pain or angst but is simply Love
I could see that I was being shown that there is no hierarchy. It looks like
there is evolution moving toward the center but the vision was
saying...Oneness is ALL of life.
I was able to look at this vision for about 20 minutes. It was so clear in my
mind, yet I said nothing to the driver nor to any of my friends when I
reached Phoenix. I kept it close to my heart. I had been doing art
since I was a kid and I did a great deal of art for shows and won a lot of
juried competitions during high school. I had been sculpting on pottery by a
master potter, doing original fine art pieces for galleries in Seattle. So I assumed this vision had something to do with
my artistic imagination, but to be honest, I wasn't at all sure what it
meant or where it came from.
It wasn't until about 1973 that I met a beautiful young woman, Peta. I felt a
kindred spirit in her and I told her about "The Fountain", which is
what I now called it in my mind. It was inspiring to think of just getting
good enough to create it. When I described the vision to Peta, acting out the
various areas, she immediately could see it and told me that it was of
extraordinary significance for the time of awakening to Oneness that was coming and that we should begin to work towards
"Doing the Fountain."
To make a long story short, that beautiful woman and I married, went through
some crazy times in the early 70's, had a son, Bo, and after three years
separated. I soon married my second wife and kept working as a sculptor,
always just wanting to work and work just to get better so I could create The
Fountain. I had a daughter, Sarah and son, Clay. We lived in the mountains of Santa Cruz. In 1982 Bo, my
first son, died at 8 and my heart was struck down just as I had made contacts,received recognition and was asked
to do major works of sculpture for big name galleries. I retreated into my
art in a way that was mostly disconnect
The wind was totally taken out of my sails for taking art to the world
and I didn't even return calls to the galleries seeking my work. I started a garden statuary business to "get by" and kept my fine art private. My children grew up and my wife and I divorced.
I write this letter to honor my return to a joyful willing heart. In June of
2006 I called Peta and said "If you want to be with me come and take my
arm." She did and we have been on a healing journey together. With the
changes of energy on the planet and help from Peta who channels the Angels of Divine Grace and teachers like Eckhart
Tolle... I feel that I am waking up...over and over in layers of awakening
and mirrors of realization. Like many others it seems we are being cleared so
we can make the divine visible in the art of life. As it is said, "We are the
ones we have been waiting for." Peta is building this website calling the Soul
Group of Beauty to re-member with us to create the new World of Divine
Beauty. Where are you guys?
If you explore the photos of sculpture and painting at www.larkinchollar.com you will find just a
small fraction of the work I have done...still, I have only recently fully
opened to the gift that is my work and now I am committed to sculpting The
Fountain! The Fountain may come immediately if some person or group can
commission or sponsor it. It may evolve into full expression after drawing
together a number of people that are seeking to make the Divine Visible and
model Oneness. As I continue to go through changes and the years turn one upon another I yearn to answer the call to
create this vision. I must believe that I am not "late" but that
this is the time that my Soul has planned for the fruition of a life of
developing my skill and opening to the virtues that can flow from my hands into the
hearts of those who receive the vision through its physical creation.
I am looking for people who share this vision of Oneness of all Being and
Spirit. I feel moved to help bring this transcendental model of Oneness to the
planet, not alone but with others who feel and understand. I am looking for people who would be willing to support this vision
financially or energetically as an investment from which they would receive
Thank you so much for your patience if you read this far. Thank you for any
help you may be inspired to offer. Perhaps you are in the Soul Group that
this vision is a part of and it is right now resonating within you as a step
on your path. Possible connections with people you know that pop into your
heart/mind as you read this may be extremely helpful. Please email or call.
