throughout time, the special mother-daughter relationship has been spoken of, explored, and noted. it can be an unbreakable bond, a true example of loyalty, love & friendship. there's a beautiful “give & take” of learning, teaching, trust & honor. this piece explores some of these ideas but also dives deeper into the even more noteworthy relationship between our heavenly mother and her first earthly daughter. what were their conversations like in the garden? what did eve most desperately want to learn in those tender moments? how did they grow together?
my asherah series depicts an ancient symbol of our heavenly mother: our beloved tree of life; its branches bursting with life, light & creation. in this piece, flowers were carefully chosen to symbolize traits & virtues we attribute to our heavenly mother & the mother of all living -- those that we may also cultivate as we seek to know and understand them better.
