La Emperatriz (The Empress)
Paola Delfin was originally supposed to paint a wall on 1st Avenue South. But the project she was working on before SHINE got backed up and her travel plans changed. She needed to switch to a smaller wall that she could complete in the four days she had in St. Pete.
This image is based on a tarot card. “The Empress” in tarot readings is traditionally associated with maternal influence. She can represent creation of life, romance, art or new business.
The woman featured in the mural is Paola’s friend from Orlando who helped her paint the mural. It was done with only bucket paint and brushes.
