Three of Cups
I come from superstitious people. My grandfather never placed a hat on a bed as it brings bad luck. There were little blessings, and sigils in the most unexpected places, some sigils and fortuitous signs are written into the door jams of my home today. There are a dozen old bottles of water blessed by the light of a full moon, stored in the kitchen cupboard place just in case. Family lore tells of an unfortunate ancestor suspected of witchcraft who was burned at the stake in Salem. So, it seemed auspicious for me to create this sculptural fetish to welcome good fortune. Inspired by the Tarot, the Three of Cups; this card is said to resonate with a spirit of creativity, wisdom, abundance, encouragement and teamwork. The card often pictures three women celebrating their sisterhood in a dance with lifted cups, embodying the benefits of harmony and unity.
