Artwork Description

In Greek mythology, Womanhood was represented by three distinct stages: Maiden, Mother, and Crone. Pictured here is my idea of the Crone, elderly, yet still strong and beautiful and at home in nature. The owl that descends toward her represents the wisdom of the aged.

Yes, I plan to! Each stage will be represented by a female human and a bird; the maiden with a dove and the mother with maybe a hen.
