Artist's Description

acrylic painting of Lady Madonna with children at her feet…Lady Madonna the eternal Mother Earth…Gaia was the great mother of all: the primal Greek Mother Goddess; creator and giver of birth to the Earth and all the Universe; the heavenly gods, the Titans, and the Giants were born to her.
The Holy Mountain

Actually this came to me when I was reading a biography of Leni Riefenstahl. There was a photo of her as Diotima from the movie “The Holy Mountain”. She was a very interesting person. She died at 98. A real survivor…unlike everyone around her. I think the only people photographed with Hitler more than her died in the bunker with him. She was an actress, director, writer, photographer and dancer. She should have danced the Spandau Ballet with the others.
Lady Madonna

Lady Madonna, children at your feet.
Wonder how you manage to make ends meet.
Who finds the 2. MONEY WHEN you pay the rent?
Did you think that money was heaven sent?

Friday night arrives without a suitcase.
Sunday morning 1. CREEPING like a nun.
Monday’s child has learned to tie his bootlace.
See how they run.

Lady Madonna, baby at your breast.
Wonders how you manage to feed the rest.
HA HA HA HA HA HA etc.
See how they run.

Lady Madonna, lying on the bed.
Listen to the music playing in your head.

Tuesday afternoon is never ending.
Wednesday morning papers didn’t come.
Thursday night your stockings needed mending.
See how they run.

Lady Madonna, children at your feet.
Wonder how you manage to make ends meet.

The picture I have painted has nothing to do with Riefenstahl other than what came to me when I looked at the photo from the movie.
