Face of Sophia Who Brings Wisdom to the Earth
I used simple line drawing with pen and ink and covering the inside of the circle with the symbols of flowers and the profile of a face. some of symbols were in my first mandalas. The profile is also in the one that I call Solar Disc. they both represent Goddess. As I reflected on the face it reminded me of Sophia Goddess of Wisdom.
She is the central pivot of creation and represents the feminine aspect in all things.
She is Wisdom Incarnate, the Goddess of all those who are wise.
Wisdom is a deep understanding and realizing of people, things, events or situations, resulting in the ability to choose or act to consistently produce the optimum results with a minimum of time and energy. It is the ability to optimally (effectively and efficiently) apply perceptions and knowledge and so produce the desired results. Wisdom is also the comprehension of what is true or right coupled with optimum judgment as to action. Synonyms include: sagacity, discernment, or insight. Wisdom often requires control of one’s emotional reactions (the “passions”) so that one’s principles, reason and knowledge prevail to determine one’s actions.
