Anyanwu, Ayida-Wedo & the(ir) Seed 

1st in the Wall Hangings as Medicine Bags series 

Generally, a serpent encircling a sphere references union in the inner and outer worlds. This particular solar golden disk is on fire. It represents Anyanwu; shapeshifter and sun-woman in Octavia Butler’s Wild Seed. The rainbow serpent around Anyanwu is Ayida-Wedo; a Haitian archetype of divine feminine energy. Together they represent “continuity and strength, integration and wholeness" (Thalia Took). Strung cowrie shells and magnolia seed pods indicate a message of transformation, new beginnings and inner fortitude and abundance.
