I drew this picture as an alternative to all of the male warriors I saw portraying this scripture. It’s an image I identify with, and, it turns out, so do a lot of women. I meditated on each piece of armor as I considered how to place them and how they would look. I wanted the piece to show strength, but not be┬ámasculine. She needed to have an obscured face so that people wouldn’t try to make an identification, instead of concentrating on the armor.

As with many pieces I do, I just started drawing, and this image came out. I hope it is an inspiration to many.
