Freestanding sculpture. Mixed media, foam, wood, paper, plaster, acrylic, epoxy resin with inlaid amethyst and calcedonia crystals. The piece represents the goddess archetype. A galaxy of archetypes unto herself, the goddess archetype is one of the most profound and overwhelming archetypes to know. She is primary among female archetypes, embodying the divine feminine. She is the powerful, pure essence of what it means to be a woman. In her gifts, the goddess archetype radiates power and grace. People are drawn to her magnetic presence. She illuminates like the sun and perplexes like the night. She is enigmatic and timeless. There is an intangible aspect to her being that transcends what it means to be human. Her presence lifts us up and holds us captive. Compassion pours from her being. Overall, the goddess archetype channels inspiration, love, appreciation, guidance, protection, nurturance, and fertility. This piece is inspired by my love for the feminine power and grace that both men and women can embody when the ego identity is surrendered. The embedded crystals both in the heart and the ‘yoni’ represent the crystallization of the truth of the goddess archetype, and this piece is here to remind us of our own inner divine feminine wisdom.
