THE PRIESTESS: One of the things I wanted to “be” when I was growing up was to be a priest, but that wasn’t possible as I was catholic!
I now know that there were plenty of priestesses in ancient cultures throughout herstory. Today many people are redefining myths, creating new ways and new rituals to connect to spirit as most of our old ways have obsolete language and stories.
I was inspired to paint this image when watching a documentary on womyn. A priestess was holding two undulating snakes to a full moon and I loved the strength, beauty and message of the scene.
After generations of patriarchal worldviews and traditions, the time has come for womyn to reconnect to their power and spirit and for men to redefine their role in creating an equitable, balanced, sensitive and respectful humanity.
