This is the story, in words and pictures, of one woman's quest for wholeness and release from despair. Fighting the scars of abuse and a war-ravaged childhood, Tataya Mato looked inward - to her dreams and active imaginations, and to her drawings, which increasingly became pervaded by the luminous presence of the divine feminine figure, the Black Madonna. Long a folk image in Europe, the Black Madonna archetype has recently begun to appear in the dreams and other unconscious material of hundreds of North American women and men. Some Jungian thinkers have identified this striking phenomenon with the emergence of a latent feminine force, demanding conscious recognition. The collective dream pattern, so often in advance of consciousness, here asserts a new caring relationship to the Earth and all its creatures. The Black Madonna Within includes 191 of Tataya's drawings, offering insight and healing through their development from the earliest and most naive images to their more matureartistic form. The drawings are accompanied by the artist-author's poignant narrative text.
