March is Women’s history month, this is for this reason that photographer Geneviève Chassé decided to present this 3 specific photos. Comparing the calm and strength of women to the order and disorder of a flock of wild birds. In our society women are praised for their grace and contenance and admonished when showing any sign of rebellion. This year’s theme of international women’s day is “dare to challenge.” So let’s challenge preconceived ideas from another era and acknowledge that the energy created during a moment of disorder is a way to go forward. As the International Women's Day website says."A challenged world is an alert world”-
Contact the artist directly if you would like more information about her work or if you would like to purchase a photograph.

Imme und Ewig: een icoon voor Bijen. Geschilderd in de traditie van het eeuwenoude ambacht van het iconenschilderen en een krachtig voorbeeld voor het eeuwige. Vervreemd van zijn daadwerkelijke verschijningsvorm zijn het abstracte boodschappers tussen hemel en aarde, wereldwijde overlevers en essentieel voor onze biodiversiteit
Imme und Ewig: an icon for the bees. Painted in the tradition of the age-old craft of icon painting and a powerful example for everlasting. Alienated from their actual appearance, they’re abstract messengers between heaven and earth, worldwide survivors and essential for our biodiversity.

Tengu on Mount Kurama 2020
From the series
Gouache on Fabriano 200 g watercolor paper
55x85cm | €750, - (framed €920)
Fall at Mount Kurama, close to Kyoto. Two tengu eggs are hatching near Sōjōbō (a very powerful tengu residing at Mount Kurama), symbolizing the ongoing cycle of life even in times of crisis. Sōjōbō is holding his fan with which he can create terrible storms.
Soon seven tengu will be gathered amidst the falling autumn leaves on Mount Kurama. Seven is a lucky number in Japan.
I hope you enjoy the painting, for my hope is for it to bring a bit of color, imaginary power, playfulness and positivity to those that view it.
Tengu: This painting refers to tales and legends involving tengu and visual representations of tengu found in Japanese woodblock prints, combined with my own imagination. Tengu are one of the many legendary creatures found in Japanese culture, and are considered both yōkai (supernatural beings) or Shinto kami (gods). They have been depicted as birds, bird-like creatures and nowadays their most defining characteristic is a long red nose. For centuries there was a believe that tengu were disruptive creatures up to no good, but their image has changed into one of protective, yet still somewhat dangerous, spirits dwelling in mountains and forests.
