Sun Gods and Star Beasts

“The Lion is the Star Beast. Your Lion is a wise judge, a king.” Credo Mutwa.

This image speaks to a period in which mankind’s greed for wealth began to grow. Development, gold, wealth and power became all important. The Lion was still seen as a symbol of royalty and the King as can be seen in the Sphinx and other statues and artworks created in these times. This greed and arrogance however did much to further destroy the balance and respect that mankind had for the animal kingdom.

In this image I used the photo of the wooden cat statuette at Tsau to illustrate Linda’s experience with Sekhmet as the light echoed Credo Mutwa’s words to Linda. “Do not forget that you have been given two faces, a black and a white face. For the Egyptians the Sphinx is, and has always been humankind’s guardian; ever alert, guarding the life-giving sun’s birthplace on the eastern horizon.

Purchasing - Mystery of the White Lion Collection

The collection consists of 23 artworks created in Veronica Coetzer’s unique photomontage style that she developed to assist herself and other trauma and abuse victims in the healing process.

Each work is filled with meaningful imagery, symbols and motives that become evident upon close inspection. The works tell the story of the White Lion from the earliest days from the time of the Sabre Tooth and the First Man, through the time of the Pharaoh's till today.
