To be sovereign relates directly to embodying the inner knowing that I am like a queen, the queen of me, the supreme and final word of all that relates to my life, my choices. Sovereignty at first was about a fight for my right to decide what happens to my body, this was the first time I ever thought about the word sovereign. I had never thought it was me. Now I know deeply just how much I, and all men and women, have been removed from their sovereign choice…that virtually all I held to be trues was a story I was told that kept me in a box following the rules.
About the Sovereign Collection
“The inspiration for the Collection started with an exciting shift inside me that happened when I was looking through some bills. I suddenly realized that I had the power to create the means to pay these bills and I headed to the studio, telling my husband I was off to paint money! On a deep level, the Larissa Davis Sovereign Collection represents the value I place in myself, in what I create, and a shift in my idea of what “currency” is… and, in fact, that we can name and create our own currency. How much more precious and dear is the art I make, each piece created with a vibration supporting our collective awakening, than the greenback in my wallet?
“The Sovereign Collection is the container for my works for the next several years. Those who know me will not be surprised by the name of this collection as sovereignty is a fire inside me. But ironically, it took me some time to come up with the name. I wanted to marry the inspiration of “painting money” with a name that deeply represents the truth of me. Sovereign, once I caught the name, made perfect sense. A Larissa Davis Sovereign is the currency of me.
“The Hundred Horses are the premiere series of the Larissa Davis Sovereign Collection.”
