One of my earliest paintings was the image of the High Priestess. A cascading waterfall with it’s source from the heavens, spilling past a crescent moon, captured and channeled by a beautiful woman whose skirts return to water. Later, I translated the image into an Amulet: the transmutation from collective unconsciousness, captured, personified and then returned into the Akashic Pool.
In an earlier blog, I have gone into more detail on the Lore of the High Priestess, featuring a smaller version developed more as one of the pieces of the Three Dimensional Tarot Deck I completed in 1992. This Large High Priestess Amulet the original version: bold, strong droplets in the skirts, the moon is at a slight angle as if seen hung in the sky, and with more facial detail.
The Large High Priestess Amulet has always been a favorite of mine, made as a dedication to Girls and Women of all ages, all that is feminine.
