The Guardian of Unconsciousnes


Author Comments

You can call this iconic image as "The Guardian of Unconsciousness" or "The Goddess Of All Ideas" or "The Goddess of Unconsciousness" or "The Guardian of Surreality" or "The Dream Guardian" or "The Lamp Woman" or "The Light Woman" or whatever you like to call.

SHE is my most iconic surreal symbol and I'm dare to say SHE is one of the most important symbols of surrealism. The Goddess Of All Ideas, the real meaning of surreality and hidden desires.

Her first appearance was on my game about surrealism, "Surrealidade" (Surreality) made in 1999 and after SHE was on my short movie "Entre Espelhos e Sombras" (Between Mirrors and Shadows) in 2007, including a sculpture in tribute.

Now I've made another tribute to the Goddess of Unconsciousness with this new painting. All digital made with tablet.

The naked woman with a light bulb as her head crucified in a cactus is the symbol of creativity. SHE is the guardian of the realm of ideas and represent the surrealism in his pure essence.

I love this very much, gives me a homey feeling. It's quiet and comforting yet holds a power deep within it somewhere.

It's like peeling back the skin and looking into a living brain, deeply meaningful in a way I can't comprehend, revolting but empathic. I love all the little things, like the way Her arms and legs wither away, how the light bulb isn't illuminated but sheds a dull, gray light light on the rest of the painting...

It's like seeing an old friend. I think I have been worshiping Her for a long time. She is the Goddess of the Tip of My Tongue, Vanguard of Dreams.

Never mind my rambling. Thank you for showing Her to me.


blew my mind

Thanks maxitaxi9311 :-)


This is an incredibly power and moving painting. I interpret this as an expression of beauty and form through religious iconography.
I love the contrast that the woman has with the background, it further cements this idea that she is the embodiment of creativity, and makes her seem far more memorable, which is important...

Thank you for your nice comments. Really appreciate it. :-)

Hideous and Blasphemous?

What about Beautiful and Awesome?

dimitrikozma responds:

Love it or hate it... That's the point. :-)
