This painting explores the terror of the medieval witch hunts. The earthly trilogy of maiden, mother, crone is being executed, however, the enduring infinity represented by the full moon will ensure that "herstory" can never be eradicated. The neurosis and sinister pathology of the patriachy spent 300+ years destroying communities across Europe and America.
