 This is the first in my “Seasons” series representing four seasons of womanhood.  Springtime (primavera) is represented by the maiden on the verge of menarche and the beginning of womanhood.  Her arms are decorated and blessed by henna, the basket represents bounty.  Woven into the henna is the symbol “Sankofa” which represents wisdom and reaching to the past to gain insight and build the future.  The owl signifies the ancestral wisdom of womanhood whispering in her ear.  The beehive signifies the community of woman she is being birthed into.

This one I specifically made for Heather, one of my best friends on her 30th birthday. She said entering this decade she feels like she’s a “woman in bloom” and in “the spring of her life.” I chose a lotus for the center to represent (as the Buddhists do) one’s pure innermost nature. Lotus’ bloom pristine from the muck to remind us that no matter what we do or what happens to us our nature is always intact and pure. Around the lotus I have four panels representing the seasons of Heather’s life. Not that any one particular season is good or bad, but all enrich us and teach us new things. Then around the outside I have things that to me represent Heather. She is very attune to to moon and astrology so I have the phases of the moon and symbols of the zodiac to represent what really propels her in her life.
