The Great Mother

This drawing was a result of my thoughts about femininity and beauty. What does it mean to be feminine? What is a true beauty? People always worshipped a female body. The earliest examples are neolitic female figurines such as the Venus of Willendorf. The body of the Venus is far from our modern beauty standards but somehow it is still beautiful and feminine.  There is a deep aesthetics hidden in this figurine. It is not its shape but the harmony of lines and curves that makes it beautiful… It is not important to fulfil any beauty standards because each person is unique. Not the perfect body but the harmony within oneself is what makes us truly beautiful!
