avant-garde Madonna


I have gotten interested in modern depictions of goddess/madonna and thought this was striking. Follow this link for the Ira-Corliss gallery.

For a few years I used to keep a shrine to the Virgin Mary,aka the Mother Goddess in our main control room at WBAI. It was respected, and even added to by most of the staff.

One day I came in, and it was gone. I found parts of the shrine in the trash in the back hallway. I repaired it, and put it back. A few daze later it was again done in.

Times have changed it seems.

Anyway the Shrine now lives in the station's Engineering/OPS office. It's safe there. Worshipper's are welcome during business hours.

Sydneyland,
Thank you for stopping by my blog and I am glad that you found a safe abode for your shrine.

This is a lovely Madonna. I like them too.

I did a digital painting of Coatlique & Xochiquetzal as Madonna & Child once, but didn't like the digital version. So now I can't find it in my files. Funny thing: I have the framed print hanging in my living room & I adore it that way!

A while back I read a book about Mary written by a woman named Donofrio (she also wrote 'Riding in cars with Boys' ) it was a nice read. enjoyed it a lot.
I can't recall the title.

i accidentally discovered that, in addition to google image search, of course, sometimes you get some really interesting things on wikipedia commons. i happened to get madonna or mother and child, not sure how....
