She has broken free from the box She was put in – both through the Middle Passage
and a society that is uncomfortable with the skin She is in.
She is adorned with kente cloth, crown, and markings of her Ancestors.
A crown of golden oval – the ovum – signifying Her rebirth, fertility and immortality.
She sends her light into the Universe and the Universe returns in kind with a light that magnifies her heART flame.
The SUNflower, bathing Her in adoration, loyalty, longevity…
Nourishing and vibrant, bringing joy to each moment.
She is aligned with the eagle spreading Her wings and taking flight.
She is the Flower Bearer, Bearing the Sweet Nectar of Her soul.
A mixed media artwork, this piece was done using acrylic paint and collage. Her crown is made of clay shaped by my hands into ovals. Her flowers are also made of clay and adorned with glass beads.
