"Mother Earth No. 812 (Kah B'en), snuck up on me. I thought I would be painting something else when I was playing with glossy and matte reds and followed it with a wet black wash to let the black separate in some places and stick in others. Only, once I was finished, she demanded to be painted. Mother Earth inspired by Mayan Masks, she is made in the shape of the Mayan symbol for woman if you saw her from the front (my interpretation) and wears a medallion with a symbol I made up by combining the Mayan symbol for Earth and the Mayan symbol for Earth Keeper with my own artistic take, thereby making it a 'Mother Earth' medallion. She looks more like a he on purpose, and will not be offended if she is referred to as he, because at the end of the day, Kah B'en is there to protect and offer good will. " -M.E.
