Desert Dwellers Art Print
If you can imagine, the city of Hollywood was once a single adobe hut in the middle of a cactus desert. About a hundred years later, many men and women moved in and needed a place to go dance and listen to music. This place was the Hollywood Palladium, an Art Deco building named after the Greek goddess of the arts Pallas Athena. Around the same time, astronomers discovered a whole belt of asteroids between Mars and Jupiter and decided to name one Pallas in honor of Athena.
Now you'll say, what the hell does Athena have to do with this desert scene? Well, her two major animal symbols are the snake and owl, which incidentally both live in the California desert and would have occupied Hollywood before movie stars moved in. So you see, that's why we need goddesses, other than being fabulous they loop the loop in our minds between the cosmos, humans, and nature.
And with this print you'll have a piece of Hollywood in your home because this design is actually painted on a utility box right by the Palladium!
