Inspiration
~~~~~~~~~~~
~ To me the pomegranate is an ancient fruit deeply rooted in our womyn-story, mythology and mystery.

The pomegranate is symbolic of fertility, abundance, prosperity and delight ~~ yet it is also full of questions.

There is an oddness too, to this fruit, that whispers of the womyn-stories long forgotten and erased. The pomegranate remains such a strong symbol of womyn to this day.

~ I played too with the reference to eve's 'apple' as this story of mankind's folly through woman has always interested me.

I thought of the images and 'place' of womyn throughout history. Too often 'we' have been and in many place still are demonized and suppressed... That which is not understood, easily controlled or simply feared has and is demonized.

~ I also referenced the image of the ‘Vitruvian Man’ by Leonardo da Vinci invoking all it stands for.
~ Finally there is a nod to the crucified or drawn and quartered martyr transformed through pain, labor and death.

Interestingly... His Holiness the Dalai Lama has stated that “the world will be saved by the western women.” I guess it is time to reclaim our story.
