Painter @alyssamonks with a composition that draws us right in to discover every single element and layer of this complex piece. I absolutely adore this piece that magically connects the beauty and aura of femininity and nature! ✨

Please meet @emil_melmoth’s ‘Our Lady of the Blind Fate’, a tormented character from the sculptor’s dark, surreal universe. Emil shares with each work a poetic caption, enhancing the visual with another layer of storytelling:
“Blind eyes to make paths for the mutual mind
Blood-like tears marking every sin
Crimson vines that come from the heart
Stroking and choking
Growing silent for every aching moaning.”
Do you know an overachiever who always seems to do everything bigger, better, and bad🍑@ssier?

Inspired by Frida Kahlo's works and drawing on cultural and religious references, this painting incorporates Serbian religious and cultural symbolism. The young woman is wearing Serbian national dress and the flowers around her, and on her dress, are inspired by vintage needlepoint designs.
St. Petka is in the background, watching over her shoulder. She is the patron saint of women. The young woman is confident, radiant, the flowers around her symbolize youth and beauty; the connection with the parrot expresses her connection with nature and herself, the parrot signifying a witness, a mirror, a true representation of one's true self.
I LOVE a good painting filled with symbolism, and @ivanaoart does the perfect job of sharing many of her artistic choices within her painting, "Emma with Parrot". And what a beautiful colour palette, too! ❤️
