Susan Shie explains:

This piece was made to be a house-buying whammy for Gretchen [ Susan's daughter] and Mike, who did indeed end up buying this house, which they put their first bid on during the big Full Moon and Total Lunar Eclipse of May 15 - 16, while I was away in Montreal. That night I could see the full eclipse from the bedroom window of the house I was staying in, and I felt the power and magic, and knew I should make a whammy for the house.

When this piece sells, half the money will go to Gretchen and Mike, to spend on their lovely house.
