About This Work of Art
"The energy of creativity and imagination. The energy of empathy. The Queen. A shift occurring and old ways dying. Poisonous masculinity melting in its own toxicity. A benevolent brother thriving in the path of equality. The matriarch rising in the age of Bronze, finding power again since the time of Gold. She has risen to restore balance. A new divine energy bearing the crown of collective consciousness will reign. Hail to the Queen.
This is for every girl growing up in our society inspired by the sacrifices of women before them, but fully aware that their every word and action will still be scrutinized if they speak up. For every woman who is not believed and gaslighted. For those who are afraid to speak. For those who no longer can. This is for my partner. This is for my daughter. #raiseyourfist"
