Placenta Art


December 30th, 2011

We have some amazing placenta lovers out there! A fellow PBi Specialist, Polly Wood, pointed me to an artist who has created amazing imagery that honors the placenta.

Nané Ariadne Jordan creates placentas from felted wool, yielding a buttery soft, hand-spun and dyed piece of art. Nané created her masterpieces as part of the Gestare Art Collective, a movement she co-founded in 2009.

Ms. Jordan has this to say about placentas: “Human placental morphology (growth and form) pays homage to the growth of trees in their branching, rooting forms that seek an interchange of nourishment through elements of air, water and minerals between life forms. ”

Thank you for highlighting the beauty and the gentle spirit of the placenta in your work.

Please view all of Nané’s placenta art on the Gestare Art Collective website.

About the Gestare Art Collective
Living in different geographic locations in North America we share our individual and collective art practices and develop collaborative projects through digital on-line communication at a distance and at residencies. The source of our artistic collaborations comes from our shared engagement with the Divine Feminine and the Earth, gestated in the labyrinthine container of wombspace.
