Dscriptin of each woman for the inside. Kali (Beside photo) Goddess Kali, the wife of Shiva, is «the one who destroys the ego» to the Hindu culture. It is depicted with the tongue out, the symbol of transformation and the killing of the ego of all beings. This goddess of death and destruction carries the skulls of her victims on the neck and «attracts the death of Ego as an illusory and egocentric vision of reality.» Kali reminds us that we are eternal «I» and not material matter. This goddess is inherently linked to Vedic art and rituals where symbolism and spirit come together in a religious mystical combination. Yanomami (Beside photo) An Indian woman named Yanomami, coming from the Amazon jungle. There are strong women living there who maintain their tribe and take care of Mother Earth. They can talk to plants and animals. This shamanic woman is the embodiment of nature itself, coming directly from the land of plants. She is the guardian of Mother Earth called «Pachamama» and their forests. The shamanic woman united with the essence of her entire being and opened up to other facts. It can capture the energy of its own center to create and harmonize the space in which it is located. Geisha (Beside photo) Geisha is a traditional Japanese artist, designed for beauty and joy since her birth. Geishas are meticulous women who take care of all the details and hide the true essence of their being under their heavily painted faces. These exceptional women represent the legacy of their ancestral traditions. Their seeming lethargy is merely an image intended to fool the observer. Catrina (Beside photo) Another woman “La Catrina Mexicana” is a symbol of traditional Mexican culture. (During the reign of Benito Juárez, cartoonist José Guadalupe Posada made a metal engraving of a skeleton in a woman’s dress called «La Calavera Garbancera.» «A Sunday afternoon dream,» he decorated with Catrina with ostrich feathers.) «La Catrina» is the epitome of death in Mexico, which is seen as an extension of life. Katerina Bohac portrayed Catrina with blue eyes, as when Europe wears a Mexican dress and is therefore a symbol of globalization and a mix of cultures. In fact, the Czech chef Kamu, who is inspired by colors when cooking, recently dressed in her dress «La Catrina» and the painter found in her inspiration how to capture the connection of cultures. Europe (Beside photo) “Europa” is a young woman of Celtic origin whose red hair reminds us of the colors of autumn. Fighting Celtic women escorted their men to the war armed with swords, axes and bows, fought and sang loudly their war songs, bravely plunged into the fight against the enemies. Julius Caesar said about Celtic women: «An angry Celtic woman is a dangerous force to be wary of.» Unlike Roman or Greek women, the Celts were respected because they got a share of the inheritance of land and property upon entering into marriage. They were ambassadors, rulers and fortune tellers of their villages. Oshun (Beside photo) the Goddess of Love, and at the same time the steward of streams and rivers. This “Virgin Mary of Mercy of Cobre”, ruler of honey and copper, is a Catholic patron of Cuba and is syncretized in “Afrocuban cults” with “Oshún”. She can be flirty, cheerful, she is a mother who gives her children everything. She is the prototype of a Cuban woman, cheerful, kind and generous, but also a provocative mistress and at the same time a lady of the house and her children. Children inherit subtlety and elegance and taste, appreciating home peace and quiet. «Oshún» is the divine being «orishá» from the pantheon of the originally African religion «Yoruba», whose name derives from the river of the same name in Nigeria. Women turn to this divine being when they want to have children because she is the goddess of fertility. «Oshun» is presented in bronze tones that remind us of its roots and color of the countries where it reigns. She is the goddess of gold, honey and pumpkin.
