The overall positive reception of the "Starlight Zodiac" series inspired Roberto Mendoza to take its design and concept a step beyond the stars and into the heavens themselves! "Simply Divine" is an art nouveau collection of multi-cultural angels, gods, and goddesses modernized into fierce fashionistas!
Gaea (Gaia) or Mother Earth, was the great goddess of the early Greeks. She represented the fertile Earth and was worshiped as the omnipotent Universal Mother. In Greek mythology, she created the universe and gave birth to both the first race of gods, known as the Titans, and the first humans.
Artist's Personal Note:
The art deco and paper doll look of the "Simply Divine" series actually began months before with the creation of "The Starlight Aquarius" from "The Starlight Zodiac" series. Her face and style graced not just the stellar and the divine divas, but the ones over the rainbow as well. New dieties are constantly being added to the series, as inspiration demands and time allows.
