Symbols of femininity, protection, rebirth, transformation, and healing in nature, grounded by Mother Earth.

Thistles represent protection from a magical perspective and also symbolize strength in overcoming difficult situations. Snakes and snails have all been used as symbols of fertility in art throughout history, but snakes symbolize rebirth, transformation, immortality, and healing, while snails represent the slow pace of life's progress. The woman in the painting is wearing a necklace with the female symbol of Venus and is portrayed in nature.

Model: Alyssa Shann
