â€œAccording to the testimony of many myths, the Cosmic Man is not only the beginning but also the final goal of all life--of the whole of creation." (Marie-Louise von Franz, Man and His Symbols).

In many cultures, The Astral Man or The Cosmic Man is a symbolic representation of the human potentiality for wholeness. The concept, seen as a symbol of Self, has often been represented by a white male human being. 

In "The Astral Woman" I have taken this strong and meaningful concept and replaced the white masculine image with a dark feminine one.
