Dolphin (Susan Seddon Boulet)

The dolphin is associated with feminine energies and the primordial waters of life; the word derives from the Greek delphinos or womb. Demeter, the Greek goddess of fertility, was represented by the dolphin in her role as mistress of the sea.
In the painting, the life-giving and feminine energy themes are emphasized by both the swimming dolphins that frame the woman's face and the infant emergign from a womblike nautilius shell.
