This is a combination of the Virgin of Guadalupe and the 20,000 to 18,000 BCE Venus figure from the cave at Laussel, France. The "Garden Madonna" is a study of the sacred feminine. Rather than an equating of the Virgin Mary with the Venus figure, the juxtaposition of the figures is meant to show that people have recognized the feminine in God and the creative process for eons. Then, there is your own interpretation.
This is an Edition of 300.
Sherridan Smith - fine collectibles offers Christian jewelry and art with an historic touch. Celtic crosses based on the actual stone Celtic crosses from Ireland, Scotland, Isle of Man, Wales and Cornwall. The "Plus" are items that are original designs or are from other parts of the world,but have influenced Celtic Christianity. It is interesting to me that through out the centuries, Christians have taken the cross - usually a symbol of torture and death - and made beautiful jewelry, displays, paintings, and sculpture. This works because the cross is a symbol of VICTORY for us.
