Annabel Du Boulay’s art installation ‘The Healing Womb’ had its debut in 2012. Comprising of four 5’x4′ acrylic paintings of the archetypal Mother of Loss, Mother of Solitude, Mother of Healing & Mother of Compassion, the installation hangs in the sacred space of The Glastonbury Gnostic Chapel, in which women gather to share their stories in relation to child loss, childlessness, the challenges of mothering special needs children and pregnancy termination.
Annabel painted ‘Brigit’ for all those who have birthed and/or care for children with special needs or disabilities.
Brigit ~ Mother of Healing ~ Fire
I am Brigit, Mother of Fire, who relights the flame
of hope in your desolate heart.
Bring me your grief, your anger, your fear, for I am
strong enough to carry you and all that you hold.
Allow your tears to flow into my gentle, healing waters
and rise again as the phoenix from the ashes.
