Princess of small creatures







Last Thursday wakanomori and I were in the town of Turner's Falls, and we saw this fabulous mural (photo is his).



So much story in there. I'm ready to like this lady of small creatures right away.

It looks like religious art. I'm really digging the subtle faces in the background.

Yeah, I like those too--also some of the stuff that seems to have been maybe grafitti'd onto her, like the little bird on her head or the fish underneath her. Other artists seem to be interacting with it in a good way.

Yes! It's hard for me to tell how many hands have worked on her and I like that.

It's like, maybe, many people aligning their breathing, and the effect being calming and clarifying for everyone involved.

She's beautiful. And I love that where other artists have interacted with her, they seem to have done so in ways that enhance rather than deface her symbolism: a bird, fishbones, the moon, a star; the grinning animal masks beside her. I think the houses in her sleeves are original, but maybe not. She looks like a living shrine.

That's a great way of putting it. She seems like a protector, and it's like everything that gets added to her is commended to her protection.
