American Triple Goddess Statue
Red/bronze colored resin. 10 inches tall.
Maiden, Mother, Wise Elder. We have
referred to tribal oral tradition in naming these powerful goddesses, which are
adapted from an image by artist Cris Palamino.
At the top is the
self-sacrificing maiden Aliquipiso of the Oneida tribe; then Irriaku, the Corn
Mother who connects the Pueblo people with the Earth; at the base, in her
tobacco-leaf crown, is Grandmother Spider, Wisdom Goddess of the Cherokee.
Smudge stick rituals can
be used to invoke their wisdom and balance.
