mutants and cherubic chimeras

cross-bred christian, pa- gan, eastern mystics sporting archetypal body tattoos, exhibitionist/warrior attire, and animal parts- in this series, mutant baby girl religious icons float peacefully. they intelligently and fearlessly contemplate the viewer. if their eyes are closed, they're just meditating. some share the picture plane with a tightly-drawn seed, fruit, or flower, (symbols of fertility, knowledge, some kind of life-force), which lend the creatures a bizarre scientific - illustration - like credibility.
