    I really really love this…how you incorporated all the symbolic “Virgoic” elements. Is that an old library card catalog? So so true. We seem almost ritualistic in the quest to understand the deep nature of universal being. And tell me, who could not love those beautiful wide hips? :)

  • Hi, Kenroome, so glad you like it. The drawers aren’t files from a library but from an old chemist, because not only is the concept of drawers (order) much connected with Virgo, but also that of healing, medicinal plants, health and drugs.The beautifully decorated hips of the night goddess are set against the white straight figure of Virgo as mother (I don’t know if you have noticed the little hands under the armpits and the fact that what look as her hands are actually the feet of the child she carries on her back). Cheers and thanks for the fav.

    love the African feel, Maraia! most creative! I’m a Virgo, by the way

  • i knew you were a Virgo, you told me so in the poem of the sign, so, if you like this I’m doubly satisfied! the African content is there to emphasize the connection of Virgo to earth. thanks so much for your comment!
