Lunula is a woman’s crescent-shaped necklace that symbolizes fertility, this form of jewellery or amulet was known already in the late Neolithic, Chalcolithic and early Bronze Age. This shape was the leitmotif for me, thanks to which I began to create new works.

At first glance, it may surprise that the symbol of femininity was for people the crescent moon, not the full moon – complete and perfect. However, when you think more deeply about the analogy of the lunar and women’s cycles, you can see more – it is in the middle of the cycle that a woman reaches her fertility peak.

This work is autobiographical in nature and intimate.
