Originally published as "Stiff White Lady" on 8/13/2010
Mary’s necklace: I saw this figurine in a book about ancient goddess worship by Marija Gimbutas many years ago. I had been reading Robert Graves’ The White Goddess, and this statue seemed to embody her to me. I assumed it was from the Baltic, and something about the figure really resonated with me, so I used it as Mary’s necklace. After I’d been working on Lacrymer, my friend Skye was in the Greek Islands and surprised me by sending me a photo of this very goddess. Turns out she’s from Greece’s Cycladic Islands.
About the Author
Molly Demeter Sokolow Hayden (or Modemeter, for obvious reasons of length) grew up surrounded by her father’s comic book collection, sometimes literally. She fell in love with Will Eisner’s Spirit at an inappropriately young age and wishes she could draw like Jaime Hernandez. She lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband, her daughter, and her cat, and sneaks down to her drawing table whenever she can.
