~this is so different. She is so young! She is also so amazingly benevolent. It reminds me of the stories of original Goddesses, this one in particular: Ix Chel; (from Goddess Gift: Meet the Goddess - [link] ) "As an ancient fertility goddess, Ix-Chel was responsible for sending rain to nourish the crops. When fulfilling that function she was called “Lady Rainbow”. She helped insure fertility by overturning her sacred womb jar so that the waters would flow. ... The small Isla Mujeres (“Island of Women”) was devoted to the worship of Ix-Chel. Comfortable with all phases of life, she was honored as the weaver of the life cycle. She protected the fertility of women and was also the keeper of the souls of the dead. "
Such an amount of detail And the more I look at it, the more I like it, because it's not just bunch of details - they have meaning and purpose, and I find the fact that they aren't noticeable easily at first sight symbolic, too. With time, everything somewhat blurs together, and she is infinite. Yet every being she listens to retains its individuality... Wonderful piece.
WOW. This is so detailed, and so lovely. I am extremely impressed with this piece. The lines are really well done, and it's just got a hypnotic quality to it. I bet it would make for a great meditation piece, too. Love the monkey! Any chance you will do more like this?
