Lady Coatlaxpeuh

2011

Metallic Gel Pen on Illustration Board

"On a mountain crossroad,
She greets the passing pilgrim:

I am the forgotten Mother
Nurturing you
With the fruits of the land

I have fulfilled the Word
To bring forth
The Divine Promise

Call to me
To learn the mysteries of the Heart

Seek me
To know the secrets of the Moon

Return to me
And be ONE with the Stars"


** Lady Coatlaxpeuh is the original name of Guadalupe

Greetings Avengium

Once again, I wish to express my gratitude. I have been a student of ancient histories for almost 40 years now, and even with that it was only recently did I come across the ancient form of Guadalupe

Salamat (thanks) at samuli (and until then)

Greeting Ledrahan

I am glad my work resonated to you.

I do admit it took me a long time to do this, even as I was having visions of Guadalupe . . . that was until I discovered her real or ancient Aztec spirit

Salamat (thanks) at samuli (and until then),

It's sort of the love child of Gustav Klimt and Aubery Beardsley after a clandestine meeting in a dark jazz club. The linework is definetly a bit of Aubery but the use of Colour is Klimt, but the figure seems to hover somewhere between the two great men. Well executed.

Thanks Thomas

I do admit that I was strongly influenced by Art Nouveau as a child, especially Mucha nad Klimt. However I wish to add that the floral designs are based on my mastery of the Ukkil floral motif of the Islamic Tausug people, whom I had integrated with years ago. But then again many of the artists of the Art Nouveau were heavily influence by the floral and organic designs from Asia. So in a sense it is returning to the roots of artistic influence.

Salamat (thanks) at samuli (and until then),

The reason that Islamic art didn't spring to mind straight away is the fact that Islamic art does not tend to use depictions of real people. Although the Islamic art movement had a huge influence on the Art Nouveau movement, especially when it comes to abstract pattern and floral design.

It is perfectly understandable. I actually wanted to share that I also feature symbols and designs from the many tribal group here in my country :)

Yes they do, and at times I try to use Celtic knot design, if the image does require it in its symbolism :)

I enjoy creating Celtic knotwork, I love the Zooamorphic designs, the used to be used a lot in the illumination of Irish Prayer books and bibles.

Same here, I always loved the art in the "Book of Kells"

I actually tried studying Celtic knot designs around 15 years ago, but it was very hard to find enough references in my country. Now it is great finding so much references via internet :)

i especially like the sinewy curve on her hip that leads to the bottom of the page between her robe, the overall drawing creates this beautiful endless flows it's crazy good

Thank you Nabila

I did want to give great emphasis to the goddess' sensuality without falling for the typical cheese cake pose to make seem her slutty (which seems to be the norm in a lot of art here in DA). I am glad that you liked it
