I have used the stone image of Coatlicue in my artwork, sometimes juxtaposing it with other powerful women, I even used it in our wedding invitations. Coatlicue, the mother of creation, of gods, of the stars and the moon, she is the grandmother. She represents the power of the female energy and the life we are given as well as the death that comes to everyone. I wanted to place Coatlicue in the stars and I used a repeating pattern from Tlatilco culture in Mexico, in the patten I see snakes in the star patterns that represents her place in the Universe. I have also been very inspired to use use these repeating patterns from Mexico, many of them represent early printmaking techniques in Mexico that were used on a variety of surfaces.
