This piece “Juno” (photograph of original artwork) was part a triptych of goddesses (Isis, Morrígan & Juno) for my MA final exhibition. My work focuses on goddesses in cultures around the world who are interconnected with birds through history and myth. Each goddess, within their own narrative/religion, is also part of a triad which is why having three represented in my work is very important. I have tried to emulate the powerful nature of each female deity by creating compelling and strong pieces. The work attempts not only act as a contemporary shrine but also to embody the spirit of what that deity represents – powerful, protective & imposing. The ancient Roman goddess Juno was seen as the protector of Rome and was depicted with the peacock. This piece is trying to emulate her strength and her protective nature.
