The Blood & Honey Storied Apron icon is the Duck masked and crowned Bird Goddess (late Vinca) found in Svetozarevo,former Yugoslavia. Wearing a bolero and an apron decorated with chevrons (Old Europe motif for moisture)artist Erin Hilleary moves us to have discussions between the individual evolving to be interwined with the evolution of all sentient beings around us. Drenched in red ochre and with her apron, the Old Europe/South Slavic Duck Bird Goddess/archeological artifact indicates the presence of the unbroken DNA line passed down from mother to daughter. Hilleary's immediate understanding after painting the Blood & Honey Icon-Storied Aprons is that of needing to work hard to learn what She-our ancient mothers has already mastered.
