"Repose" - I Am Woman collection

This drawing is the first in what would become the "I Am Woman" collection. A woman at rest, at peace. The facial tattoo resembling the washing away of the cares of the day, but also rough and fierce, a warrior taking a break. The tattoo contrasts with the surroundings of acanthus leaves, a classic and elegant motif that has existed for centuries, even millennia. She is the love, the calm, the peace, the woman that holds the strength for the world around her.
