Wisdom passed is painted on a cradled wood panel. There are many events in a females life that correspond to the concept coming of age. A females first menstrual cycle, her wedding day, loss of virginity, and the birth of children are all milestones on the journey to womanhood. True coming of age is achieved through a combination of notable experiences that bestow wisdom over the span of a lifetime. Wisdom Passed is a tribute to my grandmother, the most loving, intelligent, and wisest person that I have ever known.
