Ocean goddess project 1

Chalchiuhtlicue is a Mexican and Aztec goddess. I used her for the patron goddess of the Atlantic ocean. It is said that she became angry with the way people were treating the ocean and so she flooded the earth and turned the animals and humans she liked into fish until she allowed the earth to dry out.
With all of the earthquakes that have been happening one wonders if some of these ancient goddesses have become angry with the way we, the people of the world, have been treating their domains (although if that were true one wonders why they are not focusing on the the countries that are causing most of the problems). Hmm...just something to think about.
Here is my rendition of Chalchiuhtlicue in all of her glory....
