'The Princess of Whelks'
Goddess Army is a collection of hand-molded clay figures inspired by the Venus of Willendorf, a 30,000 year old oolite carving. Discovered in Austria in 1908, she is thought to be one of the earliest pieces of evidence of humans living in Europe.
As part of a larger collection, these three figures are a reminder of the divine feminine and speak of ancient times when a fuller figure denoted status, not shame. They represent the power women hold, both individually and collectively.
