Bodice Of The Goddess series
What we as humans perceive is not the true intentions of the Goddesses, for Goddesses do as they please and play with all the elements as mere toys just for their own pleasures...
In my interpretations, it is the Goddesses female torsos under the watery depth of the river that form the peeks and valleys of the underwater terrain. It is the Goddesses emotions that are responsible for the constantly changing waves, ships sinking, drunken men fallen overboard and sudden and glorious storms that brew over the majestic Hudson. When anything amiss happens on the river, blame it on a Diva Goddess. She’s exercising her powerful self.
