I was showing the two drawings Tupilaq Bali and the series of 7 watercolors "Thalassa of the seven seas"
I Nanshe (Sumerian) Goddess of the Persian Gulf and the animals within
II Danu (Hindu) Goddess of the Primeval Waters
III Mazu (Chinese) Sea Goddess helping fishermen
IV Nāmaka (Hawaii) Sea Goddess
V Sedna (Inuit) Sea Goddess of sea and marine animals
VI Nehalennia (Germanic/Celtic) – Goddess of the North Sea
VII Mami Wata (African -coastal and Americanas diaspora) Sea Goddess / Mermaid
Tupilaq Bali is created to protect and nurture the animals and ecosystem of Bali, especially the Asian palm civet - a nocturnal cat like animal, the Bali myna bird and coral reefs which is all at high risk.
