The Seed of the Universe

this image began as a portrait of a woman I new briefly. I was taken with her beauty and as I began to draw her face, I was reminded of Icons of the early middle ages. Hence the stylization of this image.

Mary is the last remaining goddess in our western culture. She is a symbol of compassion and mercy. She is the embodiment of creation. She reminds us of our connection with the goddess, of a time when WOMAN was honored. Are we not all born of woman?
