This is my ode to womankind. We are such vivacious and beautiful creatures. We should not be afraid to show off the wide spectrum that makes us who we are. Nobody should be allowed to place us into one category. Housewife, feminist, bitch, slut, these words are used by those who think they understand us. But I say, “How can you put something so complex and powerful into one homogenous role?”
Spiritual, intuitive, strong, independent, loving, wild, vocal, intelligent, creative, passionate, intimate, intimidating, breathtaking……………. There is an infinite amount of words to describe the intricate ways of a woman. We do not want your worship, we do not want your obsession. Only respect us and we will let you see our majestic nature.
“Sure God created man before woman. But then you always make a rough draft before the final masterpiece.”
My creature, named “The Vibrant Woman” is made up of superpowers from different animals. I will start from the bottom up to the top. She is sitting upon the grass which symbolizes her connection with mother earth and center within this world. There is a flower at the base of her torso, to show her womanly power and passionate spirit. Her legs are structured like a cat, showing her independence, her mystery and her cleverness. Her whole torso is spiraled wire, meant to be seen through, she doesn’t hide anything. Her right arm is made out of turquoise beads to symbolize spirituality. This is shaped into a lobster claw which represents resolution, transformation and sensuality. The Vibrant Woman’s left hand is a monkey’s palm. Representing her playfulness, charm and energetic nature. Her face which is difficult to see, is facing upwards as if she is yelling out to the world. The face is made out of a plastic material that when put on black changes to a luminescent blue. Her face represented by an eye of a fly to show her watchfulness and divine presence. Her tail is of a horse’s and signifies beauty, grace and freedom.
The whole being represents strength, which is in every characteristic shown, but is predominant in the lion’s mane which wraps around her head. It is wild, which she is, and represents as well her liberation.
