  • Mokoš. Slavic goddess of life-giving, protector of women's work and women's destiny. She watches over spinning and weaving, embroidery, and protects women in childbirth. Mokoš is the Great Mother.
She is the only female deity mentioned in the Old Kievan pantheon of AD 980.

I've illustrated the life-giving and crafting aspect with a spiral on her pregnant stomach, which she is embroidering, thus creating life both literally and figuratively. The Spiral has become perhaps the best known modern symbol of the Divine Feminine. The life renewing potential of the Spiral appears in the stories of various cultures, as a representation of the universal process of growth, as well as the desire for diverse expressions of creativity.

On her chest is the ichthys symbol. I bet the majority of Christians out there don't realize that the fish used today to refer to Jesus, officially called the ichthys, originally represented the vagina. It was an ancient symbol that pretty much showed up next to any fertility goddess, including Atargatis, the Syrian fertility goddess; Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and sex, and the pagan Great Mother goddess Mokoš.

It has been said that it was chosen as a symbol of Jesus because it was so commonly known and used, but there have been a lot of attempts to separate it from its vaginal roots — especially by Christian scholars, because heaven forbid Jesus is so closely connected to a vagina. 
Her colors are simple, hair decorated with a few braids and flowers to bring out her earthliness. Moons above symbolise the powerful yet sadly taboo subject of menstrual cycle, which in itself is a rebirth cycle. 
This goddess was recommended by my all time number one supporter @pikturesk974 who has always been there for me giving comments of encouragement. ♥️ I hope you like this piece, even though its a bit more laid back. I have some goddesses written down, but if you have any more suggestions please do let me know! 🖤

  • I have nothing new to share because my family has been stuck under various versions of the flu for the past few weeks (we even got the flu shot!!) so here’s some pansies from a time when it wasn’t a billion degrees below zero 🌿

Скоро будет два года, как я занимаюсь выжиганием, и через пару недель придёт мой новый пирограф, а на снимке вы видите одни из первых попыток. Но вообще я не об этом. Об этом потом, позже.
Недавно читала пост, где художница пеняла своему парню на то, что он её отрывает от творческого процесса всякой ненужной бытовухой навроде уборки, стирки, готовки, совместного времяпровождения и - какой ужас! - секса. Мол, пока я творю и пока прёт вдохновение, я оффлайн. Могу неделями не готовить и почти не есть, жить в грязи и ни с кем не общаться, зато создам шедевр. Но если меня оторвать от процесса, нить будет потеряна и всё, Третьяковка/Лувр/Метрополитен утратят возможность пополнить залы ценнейшим образчиком пост-модернизма (простите, я порой излишне саркачтична).
Я читала и скребла в затылке. Как-то уж так вышло, что будучи человеком, который постоянно что-то творит, я ещё и неплохая жена и хозяйка. Уборка трижды в неделю, всегда вкусный ужин, вещи выстираны, выглажены и стопочкой сложены на полках. Муж доволен, кот тоже. Я - тем более. И при этом работа тоже не стоит на месте. И более того: все творческие, кого я лично знаю, такие же. Некоторые ещё и своё хозяйство держат и детей воспитывают. И да, тоже творят. Мы находим время и на быт, и на работу, и на друзей с родными, и книги, и на секс, и на "ай-нанэ-нанэ", когда просто веселишься как не в себя. И не ждём вдохновения - оно редкостная сволочь и где-то пьянствует на пару с музой. Это с нами что-то не так? Или всё же есть и те, кто живёт, как автор поста? Просто мне пока такие не встречались.

  • Oggi vi portiamo in un posto a noi caro, stiamo parlando dello "Jarath Studio" del Maestro Graziano Mossuto, un luogo molto intimo per un musicista, dove viene messo a nudo e spinto a limite delle proprie emozioni, nonchè lo studio di registrazione dove abbiamo inciso tutte le nostre canzoni. Alla fine di ogni registrazione il Maestro ci regala una sua versione, che a noi piace definire "Sminchiata", del brano appena inciso.
Oggi vi proponiamo appunto, la versione sminchiata de "Il Cristo Nero".
