This series started her exploration of the marks and symbols of past civilizations and cultures. It grew out of time spent in Central America where she was introduced to Pre-Columbian art and artifacts. Thus she began the investigating the journey that all civilizations take through the cycle of birth, death, and rebirth.
If we judge by what has been preserved through the ages, we can see that the first artists made images in an effort to communicate with the forces that had power over their lives. Perhaps their imagery was a talisman or prayer of sorts to ease their journey through life, helping them deal with their joys and life struggles.
