Vesica Piscis Pool

At the bottom of Chalice Well Garden is a magnificent water feature called the Seven Bowls Flow Form and Vesica Piscis Pool. Fed by the Red Spring, the large Vesica Piscis Pool has a reddish hue to it because of iron oxide build-up. In fact, the gardeners drain and clean the Pool with a power-hose every couple of weeks to keep the build-up under control. The Pond is surrounded by beautifully landscaped garden with roses and other flowers, stone paths, wooden benches and topiary bushes.

The spring water enters the Pool via the Seven Bowls Flow Form. As the water enters each bowl, it swirls in a figure eight movement -- the symbol of infinity -- thereby honouring the eternal nature of the Divine Feminine.

And see how each flow form bowl evokes powerful vulva imagery! The eternal waters of life break and flow from the womb of the Goddess through Her sacred yoni!

I have to do a post on the vagina.

Some of my sisters and I were talking about it awhile ago and laughing our heads off.

Yes we can be 7.

Fascinating! Such amazing imagery. Thank you for posting about the Chalice Well; I wasn't aware of it before this. (I've gone to the site to learn more, too.)

Thanks for posting this. I'd never really looked at it in this way, but you know what? It sure does remind one of a vulva. Beautiful pics.

The last photo was reminding me of a vulva even before I read what you wrote about it. lol I still don't know how it looks like a vulva...but somehow it just does.

I wanna go there! It looks so beautiful. I'll bet the energy there is amazing. :)


I'm so glad you mentioned they were vulva shaped..i thought it was just me..wheew*

It's beautiful - it certainly was not there when I visited Glastonbury about 36 years ago.
