The Black Madonna.

 

St. Barbara

Acrylic latex, paint on primed wall.                3′ x 5′.

This mural of the Black Madonna was completed today at Milokan Botanica. The idea of the Black Madonna was first realized as the dark skin of the goddess Isis. Her dark skin (or blackness) was associated with the life-force of all matter. This iconic Earth mother plays an important role in modern spiritualism.
