Icons of The Sacred Feminine

This is my humble interpretation of The Virgin Mary.

Holding to the traditional characteristics of the Virgin Mary and translating them to a Forest Goddess was easy, because to me the two are One with other icons of Divine Feminine and All of them hold the same energy of peace and protection. Making the connection with Our Lady of Bethlehem and Mother Nature/Our Lady Creatrix of the Universe, is no different from other images in the Buddhist tradition such as Tara or Kuan Yin, which represent the unconditional form of love, protection and compassion for all beings.

I had to create something softer and positive for this coming week.

She is adorned with beads, spiral shells, carved birds and soft yarn, supported with white birch twigs, her sweet face was handcrafted with polymer clay. She holds a small moon symbolic of protection. She has a loop on her back for easy display on your wall.


Born in Tulancingo, Hidalgo (a town near Mexico City) Griselda began her formal training under the guidance of her mother, Kasandra Martell. Her brother, Arturo Tello, is also a gifted artist. Griselda's art represents over 40 years of painting and teaching experience. The moments she captures on canvas convey the magical time of day when objects are most apparent and evoke a sense of peace and being transported into a place of gentle beauty. Griselda is an avid student of sacred art and mystical traditions; from these themes she finds inspiration for her paintings and soft sculptures. Paintings and other works of art in this site are my own originals. All rights reserved © 2014
