favourite faces for favourite mythic ladies: Pele with Sandrine Holt
But you’ve never seen fire
Until you’ve seen Pele blow
The earth-eating woman, Ka wahine ʻai honua, magnificent Pele who takes lovers as she pleases and does only as she wishes, whose hair is spun glass and whose eyes burn with the fire of her volcanoes. Tempestuous and volatile, all-giving and all-destroying.
