La Loba, a mythic figure of old feminine wisdom collects and sings over the bones of wolves to raise them from the dead. Her tale is a symbolic ritual of tapping into the wild, all-knowing intuitive power which is suppressed and residing within all females. Eggs (orphic), a symbol of fertility, alchemic process, rebirth, and psychic rejuvenation signify the female awakening when cracked open.
