24×30 acrylic on canvas

Named after the great plumed serpent god of the ancient Maya. Quetzacoatl possibly symbolizes the expansion and evolution of our DNA, or the rising kundalini. Also thought to symbolize the planet Venus, the morning star.
In this work the woman represents our own awakening of the divine feminine energies that charge the kundalini. She has a slight look of fear as she peers into the eyes of the serpent. I think many people are feeling fear right now as many of their old patterns and victim-selves are leaving them. The kundalini is rising, and yet we want to hold on to the old patterns because we think they are who we are. We must look into the eyes of the serpent and really know who we truly are right now.

Tammy Mae Moon is tired of writing about herself in third person. I like to paint. I like to paint women and birds and snakes, and a few other things.
