Throughout History comes this lushly illustrated book of goddesses from around the world. Aphrodite, the Greek goddess whose love overcame mortality. Mazu, the Chinese deity who safely guides travelers home. Lakshmi, the Hindu provider of fortune and prosperity. These powerful deities and many more are celebrated in gorgeous artwork and enlightening essays that explore the feminine divine and encourage readers to empower themselves. Ann Shen's signature watercolors make Legendary Ladies a unique, gift-worthy homage to the mighty women within.
As part of this blog tour, each post will focus on a specific "Legendary Lady" or Goddess and for my stop, I will focus on Aditi.
In many examples, she is also depicted as a cow due to her nurturing nature which is quite odd but still cool none the less.
Legendary Ladies is also a wonderful book which amazing illustrations featuring insight information about 50 or more goddesses that I have personally never heard of. The book is also great for anyone young and old looking for a read featuring mythology and goddess.
This blog tour also only features 13 of the 50 Goddesses in the book so is definitely a must read!
