Wisdom 2 web

A familiar image for those who know the Tarot, but here Wisdom goes beyond the archetype of the High Priestess. She is the Divine Feminine, Sophia, Mother of the World, Cybele on her lion throne; she is both the Tree of Life and the Snake. She is the Dove of the Holy Spirit descending (before the concept became masculinised). She resides between the polarities of black and white, here depicted as a white and a Black Madonna, her feet resting on the crescent moon.
