This painting represents priestesses, the guardians of the feminine being. Serie “Doors and windows of the soul.”

…In the beginning of time women could be all the necessary. Giving life, preserved through the food and healing, protect through its communication with the Great Goddess and accompany people at the time of his death. It is logical that women are regarded as a being with immense power. A magical power. A big secret…
“These women symbolize the balance of consciousness and the feminine energies within the society and religion of the Goddess. The priestesses, witches, shamans and witches have the ability to transmit the power of the divine and this is a typically female capability self-knowledge that comes from being. Become a priestess means dive inside.” Rescue the shaman, the healer, the witch and priestess in us and let us make reborn within us.
