About The Artwork:

"Giantess" is a captivating black-and-white illustration weaving profound symbolism. Within it, orcas breach from a lotus flower, each element laden with layers of meaning. The lotus, revered for its purity and spiritual significance in various cultures, symbolizes enlightenment, spiritual awakening, and the journey towards inner peace. It emerges from murky waters, signifying the potential for growth and transformation even in challenging circumstances.

Hidden within the delicate petals of the lotus lies a pearl, a symbol of wisdom, purity, and inner beauty. Like the lotus, the pearl emerges from adversity, representing the treasures within oneself amidst life's trials. It embodies the journey towards self-discovery and the realization of one's inherent worth and beauty.

Amidst the scene, dandelion seeds gently float, adding another layer of symbolism to the artwork. Dandelions are often associated with resilience, survival, and fulfilling wishes. Their seeds, carried by the wind, symbolize the spread of hope, and possibility.

The orcas, majestic creatures of the sea, symbolize strength, intelligence, and community. Their breach from the lotus flower represents the journey towards enlightenment and the power of transformation

Combined, these symbols offer a narrative of transformation and renewal. "Giantess" invites contemplation of life's interconnectedness, inner peace, and renewal. Through its imagery and symbolism, it serves as a powerful reminder of the depth found within human experience.

"I will go on adventuring, changing, opening my mind and my eyes, refusing to be stamped and stereotyped. The thing is to free one's self: to let it find its dimensions, not be impeded." ― Virginia Woolf, A Writer's Diary
