Contemporary Goddesses | Sonalika Vakili
This series is showing my hybridized world through my body at different places that I have traveled, actually my self portrait in landscape even sacred places throughout the history of goddesses painting between 18-19 century among the women of daily life in William Adolphe Bouguereau and John William Godward paintings, far from any archetypal sign or ancient religious icon in my appearance to show that where I came from, so l stitched goddesses portrait in to my figures in order to create my dream world because believe that the goddesses images are symbol of independence ,beauty and power and a body in a landscape that has been associated with ideas of freedom, personal, sexual or political.
