Freya- our Germanic Goddess of Love and Fertility

Freya- our Germanic Goddess of Love and Fertility

Material: Oil and pure gold leaf on wood
Size: 121 (visible: 100) x 131 (visible: 120) cm

This painting represents Freya, our Germanic Goddess of Love and Fertility. Freitag and Friday are named after her. I think its time for Goddesses. The sole philosophy of the male Gods ruins the world. Goddessess, like good mothers will be more careful with our precious planet.
