One of the Underground Shamans
In the Multiverse of which Earth is a part, all Beingness is experienced in and through physical form. In this Multiverse, the Maln are the most highly advanced race. They are kind, generous, and truly Good.
In the Maln, their Deep Selves are so highly developed and so much an aware part of their personal identity and daily life, that most Maln experience some outward physical manifestation of that Deep Self.
Certain Clans of the Maln are Travelers, carrying their unique wisdoms to the Worlds without number - through transplanal Gates and Gateways.
Many of our ancient rock carvings depict their visitations here, long ago. The Maln are among the many Underground Shamans of our World.

Your thumbnail looks disturbing, but the original image looks simply great! I wish you a nice weekend and please stay healthy!

Once again, you've created not only a vivid depiction of the shaman, but you've given her/him a mysterious and illumined background, both in words and image. The deep red-purple sky communicates inwardness (as well as passion). The arch must be one of those gateways. nAd you have this primal tree---almost made of stone---with beautiful primal flowers (spindly, primal stamens...alive), and a sense of real age.
The shaman is doused in dark shadow---an indiction (I sense) not of the darkness of the Main, but of the darkness we sense when approaching the Main...meaning, we have to receive its path before we can see the deep light inside it. You gave great light to the mouth and eyes: he/she doesn't look foreboding so much as glowing inside. And your narrative speaks of travelers, while it also suggests that it really is in the same place no matter where it travels, because all tranquility is within it. I love that you end by saying that our ancient carvings hold tracings of their visits, long ago. ('Footsteps' left in their wake, and suggestions of paths in front of us.) Another beautiful upload from you.

No one really knew who built the Gate.In what multiverse's world I mean...For the Gate existed across a multitude of worlds...In some worlds it was still part of imposing ruins whose walls were still adorned with faded frescoes...Frescoes depicting Starblowers, heads of androphagous dragons transmuting into their mouths the Initiate Heroes. ...and also the Travellers of course, those who walked between the worlds and shared their knowledge with those who could receive the Silent Word...In this world, only the Gate remained, in the middle of the golden savannahs where strange thorns grew under the great red sky...
Magnificent image as always ! Stay safe and take care my friend !!

This is wonderful, my friend, and I love the story behind the art. Those cave paintings tell more than we can possibly imagine..
