Black Madonna Within: Drawings, Dreams, Reflectionsby Tataya Mato
Synopses & Reviews
This is the story, in her own words and drawings, of one woman's quest for wholeness and release from despair. Fighting the scars of abuse and a war-ravaged childhood, Tataya Mato looked inward—to her dreams and active imagination, and to her drawings, which increasingly became pervaded by the Black Madonna image.
Long a folk image in Europe, the Black Madonna archetype is a significant image for Jungians. Some Jungian thinkers have identified the Black Madonna with feminine force and powerful Earth goddesses. The Black Madonna Within includes 191 of Tataya's drawings. These poignant and evocative illustrations are accompanied by the artist-author's narrative text.
