“Ishtar, Lilith, Morrigan… Hekate, Kali, Cerridwen…” the artist would quietly chant to her as he worked because he knew she had many faces.
She is the Queen of Heaven and Hell.
Available in limited edition cast bronze (metal) and soon to be available in resin from Sacred Source, The Witch Queen by Christopher Orapello 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. She exists in complete contrast to The Witch Lord in height and design. Stand them face to face and they look into each other’s eyes.
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 wondrous 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!
She is definitely a face for a new age of witchcraft.
As a sculpture, The Witch Queen is available in a limited edition of 30 cast bronze statues, each piece will be individually numbered and cataloged, and will be issued a certificate of ownership from the artist. (The resin version will be available Fall 2018 from Sacred Source.)
