Nancy Macko. Amazon Rose, 2003–2004.

Description:
One in the "Our Very Lives" suite of large scale digital prints. Using images from old wallpaper, ancient artifacts from the Cucuteni period (5000-3500 BC) and paint-by-number drawings with the talisman of the bee priestess, these works draw upon notions of memory, time and the ancient past to pay homage to a female lineage that harkens back to the beginning of time. As women our experiences--both personal and public-- are inscribed in and on our bodies like cultural tattoos that are often easily recognized and understood.
