Sonia Ruiz – M
Letter M for Motherhood
Inspiration: Coatlicue (Nahuatl: “Serpent Skirt”)Aztec earth goddess, symbol of the earth as both creator and destroyer, mother of the gods and mortals.
I have chosen a photo of my daughter from her pregnancy photo shoot to represent the earth goddess. I layered her image with organza to make the image more ethereal. I also added glitter cut out designs of polyester organza to represent rays of light. I continued the yarn confetti technique in the jungle, added black tulle on the lower part of the pyramid to create a shadow. The letter “M” shaped serpent is a styled heart.
She is my Aztec princess and I am blessed to be able to be with her during this special time.
