Psezpolnica is the Mid-Day Goddess and Polunocnica is the lady of Midnight. From the Gradac classical Vinca site, a Bird winged figures nude torso and hipline skirt/gridle, early 5th millenium BCE, suggest the inseparable Mother Nature- solar and lunar influences. Psezpolnica in Serbian is Young Maiden-twelve years of age, (representing the twelve planets that can be seen) of the Midday- the word for noon (Poluden) appears only when it is the hottest summer temperature possible. Polunocnica, Lady of the Midnight is known for her long sagging breasts hanging to her stomach and crone appearance as Baba Yaga- Mother Nature- the Widow Goddess. Artist Erin Hilleary years long delving into Marija Gimbutas' archeological research takes the Blood & Honey Icon Goddess of Mid-day & Lady of Midnight packages her art not in words but icons to be projected to other minds where it is taken in and immediately understood.
