Erin Hilleary evokes with her paintbrush an invoked presence and potency of the legendary Bogumiles in this Blood & Honey Icon “Bogumiles-Green Man-Thunder gods.” In essence Bogumile is the last of the green men who protect the Mother Earth, and honor the feminine aspects within their male bodies. For females, the Bogumile is representing a masculine aspect that follows the guidance of the divine, her feminine. The steale (standing stones) remains of the Bogumiles in former Yugoslavia, are fundamental South Slavic acts of the potency found in ancestor veneration showing a deep affection for Mother Earth- Mother Nature (termed by Slavs as Baba Yaga).
