Bride-zilla


 Self Portraits, 2011

"With the simplicity characteristic of it, the Bible (and the liturgy following it) honors and praises throughout the centuries 'the womb that bore you and the breasts from which you sucked milk' (Lk 11:27). These words are a eulogy of motherhood, of femininity, of the feminine body in its typical expression of creative love."
- THE SPOUSAL NATURE OF FEMININE BEAUTY BY JOHN PAUL II
