The Witch Queen by Christopher Orapello
"Ishtar, Lilith, Morrigan… Hekate, Kali, Cerridwen…" the artist, Christoper Orapello, would quietly chant to her as he worked because he knew she had many faces.
The Witch Queen is the Queen of Heaven and the Queen of Hell. The keeper of the gates above and below. She is all things. A union of many. Beautiful and monstrous.
Many goddess images strive for ideal feminine beauty while ignoring the frightening images of female divinity found throughout the world.
The Witch Queen beckons that adoration of the monstrous and the dark side of the divine feminine while also portraying aspects of motherhood, beauty, strength, and grace. Creating a dichotomy not often found or expressed in many examples of modern Pagan imagery. A wonderous enigma of the divine feminine. What do the various items she is holding reveal? Is she pregnant? Is she young or old? Why is her face that of a human skull? Ask her yourself and find out. She has much to teach you of her ways!
The Witch Queen measures approximately 14 x 11.5 x 6 inches. She is crafted of cold cast bronze.
