In the myths that societies create for themselves, gods are male figures while women are at best secondary icons. Inspired by her Burmese and Buddhist culture, Chuu Wai appropriates it and twists its meaning by creating a strong, feminine and quiet goddess with many faces. This character is animated by a chimerical creature, the ‘Pyinsayupa’, whose lion’s head adorns a dragon’s body, horses’ legs and a white carp’s tail. On a deep and peaceful blue and green background, this goddess gathers and expresses all the divine potentialities contained in each of us.

Dans les mythes que les sociétés se créent, les dieux incarnent des figures masculines tandis que les femmes sont au mieux des icônes de second plan. Inspirée par sa culture birmane et bouddhiste, Chuu Wai se l’approprie et en détourne le sens en créant une déesse aux multiples visages forte, féminine et tranquille. Ce personnage est animé par une créature chimérique, le ‘Pyinsayupa’, dont la tête de lion orne un corps de dragon, des pattes de chevaux et une queue de carpe blanche. Sur un fond bleu et vert paisible et profond, cette déesse rassemble et exprime à la fois toutes les potentialités divines contenues en chacune de nous.
