Icon of Sesheshen
5”x7” Collage Artwork handmade by Alexis Smith in Marfa, TX
This Icon depicts the image of Sesheshen/Lotus, Nymphaea caerulea, the sacred flower of enlightenment, connection to the divine, and blossoming consciousness.
Shesheshen is mounted on a background of thick mud, from which she rises through the murky waters of the lake. Around her are rays of light, shooting Ankhs (life) in all directions.
