“Sacred Feminine” was inspired by the sacred female archetype passed down since the dawn of time. This picture represents the goddess in all stories, traditions, and cultures. As Gloria Amendola author of The Divine Feminine explains, “These traditions are mystical, magical, powerful, and part of primal Mother Earth.”
Incorporating aspects of various indigenous cultures, this piece is intended to bring attention to the civilizations, species and traditions before us that have seemingly been forgotten by modern man. Have modern societies transcended from these cultures, or have we completely ignored the wisdom and communal traditions of our ancestors?
One of the biggest challenges we face ourselves with is unity. The tribal mentality works as one entity: hunting, building, growing, nurturing the young, creating music, and beyond, everyone contributes to the whole. From neighborhood to neighborhood, it’s almost become tradition for some of us to divide, separate, and categorize ourselves into race, class, and religion, and vilify others for their differences.
Is it comfort? Are we afraid to be “wrong” or have our core beliefs challenged? What would happen if we had to work together to save our species?
