Women’s ability to create and sustain life, although thoroughly documented and understood by science, remains an awe-inspiring act surrounded by an air of mystery and magic. The power to create life has historically caused women to be viewed in vastly different lights: this power is revered in the form of deities of fertility, and feared as a threatening menace when witches use the power to create to summon unholy atrocities from barren wombs. This work hints at the female power to create: the hand is a tool of creation, in this case slender and soft, posed in a sensual gesture. The green liquid may be perceived as a venom, a nourishing broth, and water from a fertile lake, primordial fluids, or whatever the viewer may make of it. The mysterious liquid could be one of decadence or danger, potion or poison; such is the mystery of womanly power.
