“Dona Marina”

Description from Michelle Downy Chick: Ok...these stones and colors are well out of my comfort zone...

Dona Marina, or La Malinche, is the Mexican equivalent to our Sacagawea, with a much more tragic story. I think she deserves a lot better than that.

I wanted to capture the rich earthy tones I imagine of ancient Mexico, as well as a splash of femininity for this woman.

    I think you did a GREAT job, doesn’t look out of your comfort zone at all. Before even reading your description I was already picturing the strong, indigenous Mexican woman. You chose great stones and the green CZ goes so well and adds the femininity you were after. Two thumbs way up! :)

    Thanks! I was looking for something to do with those Mexican painting stones, which are really neat, and putting together a packet about Dona Marina for one of my classes. Glad you like it :)
