Rose Datoc Dall - Artist Statement

These series of images are about the ideals and values of womanhood, the inherent God-given virtues possessed by all women of every race and creed. Gold, in Guardian of Virtue represents virtue and personal purity; green is symbolic of knowledge, even knowledge of self and self-worth; and orange is symbolic of choice and accountability and the responsibility attached to each given choice. (Of eight values and virtues, only three here are represented in these entries.)
