Note: I am writing a story/journal that I don’t want to show before it is published in full. These are some of the illustrated pages in the sketchbook for the story.
The Virgin Mary I fell in love with as a child, especially in her form as Guadalupe.
This Lalique statue was given to me by a childhood friend, Padre,
who was a priest, guiding light and generous man.
She is a hard statue to portray, being clear crystal. I keep trying!
My Quan Yin is one of the first statues I purchased for my altar.
The Buddhist goddess of Compassion, SHE was a HE.
(I have written a bit about her on my other blog.)
I bought her with Mitchell, but I don’t remember where.
She is a very primitive version of MahaDurgha, the Great Goddess.
I love her “cat,” Senghe or Senge, peeking over the top — so sweetly!
In more formal depictions she is riding a tiger or lion.
She is the warrior protector who all the gods called upon to defeat the worst evil.
We are a multi-devotional home.
