Back to Queen Califia’s Magical Circle. This time I’ll focus on de Saint Phalle’s totem-like sculptures surrounding Queen Califia.
The “totems” are covered with symbols and forms from Native American, Pre-Columbian, and Mexican art as well as the artist’s own imagination.
I had to do a close-up of the mermaid because I love the colors so much.
Here’s one framed by serpent heads.
Boy, does “snake eye” fit this one.
It blows my mind to think of how long it took to complete each one of these.
All of de Saint Phalle’s colors amaze me, but I love her blues the most. More of that color in Part III.
Great weekend, everyone!
