I Was a 20th Century Lesbian > 3: We All Come From the Goddess

Watercolor woodblock (mokuhanga)

In Christianity, the Annunciation is the announcement by the angel Gabriel to the Virgin Mary that she would conceive a son.

Birth is announced by a literal rush of water that pours from the womb of the mother. The bands of color in this print are waveforms from a recording I made of myself reading a verse from an Indian scripture in which the Goddess asks how the world came into being.
