Homage to Mother Earth

Pachamamma. 2057

Every day, since the beginning of time, the earth, the wondrous mother earth has supported us. Under our feet every moment of our lives,  she provides for us in every way.

The moist magical blood of the mother, the feminine energies that swell and give birth to abundance on this planet. Wonderful Pachamama.

The Divine mother comes in many guises, in Greece for example, DEMETER, mother of Persephone, tall in stature, full hipped, wide shouldered, swollen breasts always full of milk, the stars of the milky way is said to flow through her ……….  as she walks the earth flowers spring from the footprints she leaves behind, she is the bringer of the seasons and the mother of Persephone.

In Egypt, ISIS, she who gives birth to the heaven and earth, the Queen of the heavens, Mother of the gods, the light giver of heavens and she who knows how to make right use of the heart.

In Roman history she was known as CERES. in the Andean communities she is knows as PACHAMAMA, 

This detail is from a much larger painting I completed recently  in homage to her vibrant presence under our feet.
