A generation should tell a next generation how beautiful she truly is”
A prayer to Hathor, from the Stela of Ipui
A fire flickers in the darkness. night breaths heat. Movement, shapes, unidentifiable. Voices cry out, night birds rage. Fragments of a body emerge, the curve of a belly, a leg, an eye. The images coalesce and become one great horned, pregnant bellied goddess. She is raw, she is triumphant, she is the height of summer’s fecundity , she is birthing the world itself. Inform yourselves. Make change. Take action for life.
