3 Wise Women

My newest work, “Triba Magia” which translates to “The Three Wise Women”, or “The Three Magi”, which started with a question: 
What if the Zoroastrian mages in the Bible who were following the Star of Bethlehem had been women?
Challenging perspectives of both history and mythos visually is something that consumes me as an artist. I search for the hidden ways our souls use to define our worlds. So often an image speaks to us deeply without words and fills our consciousness with “truths” based on the prejudices associated with those images. 
While this doesn’t look like a typical depiction of searching for the Christ child, in my spirit it is exactly what I feel it would look like had the wise men been women. In my deeper soul, knowing that there were women seeking Jesus beyond and before men. Women supported Jesus throughout his ministry, and were an integral (if scantily mentioned) part of the early church. 
Artistically, the three birds allude to the trinity within us of Maiden, Mother and Crone, reflecting the three figures themselves. The bare trees represent as figuratively “not yet bearing fruit” because all of the world is waiting for His birth. And of course, the “Star” of Bethlehem which is the astrological conjunction the mages knew as the sign of this historical event. I chose the colors of autumn to winter allowing the timeframe to fit the period of just before the winter solstice, when light returns to the world anew.
I am offering this as a card this year, and also as a limited edition print, which can be found here:

I have joined with many parents affected with the surreal , yet accepted issue of child abuse via Pathogenic Parenting / Domestic abuse. As a survivor of Domestic Abuse, denial abounded that 3 sons were not affected. In my desire to be family to those who have found me lacking . As a survivor of psychiatric abuse, therapist who abused also and toxic prescribed medications took me to hell on earth with few moments of heaven. I will share my life, my experiences and my studies and research.. I will talk to small circles and I will council ; as targeted parents , grandparents , aunts , uncles etc. , are denied contact with a child for reasons that serve the abuser ...further abusing the child. I grasp the trauma and I have looked at the lost connection to a higher power.. I grasp when one is accustomed to privilege, equality can feel like discrimination.. Shame and affluence silences a lot of facts , truths that have been labeled "negative". It is about liberation of the soul from projections of a alienator , and abuser ..
