Beauty Lies Within You
We can't claim sole custody of the patterns that lie within the Royals leather tote - although we have found a new way to express them.
The floral glyphs and night stars patterns found in House of Royals pieces originate with the Queen of Heaven apparition to a humble, open-hearted man in Mexico, at the time when the gods and goddesses of the region were believed to be foreboding characters who governed with stern systems and demanded bloody child sacrifice and ritual for the flourishing of the nation.
When the woman appeared on the hill of Tepeyac, she approached the man with tenderness, wearing the teal and rose red of the tribal goddesses, imprinted with floral glyphs that symbolized pictorially in their language, both the rivers and mountains of native worship and also the arteries leading to a heart. She was clothed with the night sky constellations of the day she appeared.
She also appeared pregnant, with the waist band of the pregnant tribal mothers, and her dress of glyphs was covered in jasmine flowers, none more prominent than the one hovering above her womb. That one jasmine flower, unlike all the others she wore, was the four-petaled jasmine, the Mayan empire's symbol for their highest deity. It was as if she could hardly contain the fact - even in her royal dress - that the Son in her womb was indeed the true Deity that their hearts had been longing for.
The beauty that lies within.
