Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce on Bravo Had my Triple Goddess Statue on Set!

Jan 11 my Sacred Source Triple Goddess statue was seen on TV! 

You might remember back in August I received a clearance agreement from the set decorators of Bravo's "Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce" they wanted to use my Triple Goddess statue as part of the set decoration in Season 3, Episode1! Season 1 and 2 are on Netflix, it's not specifically a witchy or fantasy show, it's a dramady, pretty mainstream, so that's darned cool if you ask me. 

So after a couple of my prints appeared on SyFy's The Magicians, I knew the statue would be somewhere on the set, it could be seen right next to a main characters head while they're talking, or it could be a blur in the background, or even end up on the cutting room floor, the only way you ever know for sure is when you watch the episode. You can imagine how excited I was to see my Triple Goddess gracing the fireplace mantle at the elegant Goddess Ritual that Phoebe threw for her friends on the full moon night of the Summer Solstice! 
I first found it in a publicity shot for the show!

Once I got to watch the episode I was so excited! I was scanning every scene watching for it and then there it was...squeeee!

Of course I couldn't resist going back through the episode and grabbing a couple screenshots!

I zoomed in on this one.

Anyway, it was a lovely scene, the room was stunning, any witch (or Hollywood socialite) would be delighted to be welcomed to such a lovely celebration.

Thanks for sharing my excitement!

If you're looking for this statue to place in your own home, I designed it for Sacred Source, if you visit the website (Click Here) you can see it close up front and back and even order one for your own sacred space!  

"The Triple Goddess represents the divine feminine's connection to the cycles of nature. The Maiden is the spring, sowing seeds, new beginnings, and the waxing crescent moon. The Mother is the bounty of the earth, summer, fruition, first harvest, and the full moon. The Crone is the end of the growth cycle when the leaves turn, final harvest, the sleeping earth in winter, and the waning crescent moon. 

All three Goddess archetypes are known individually, but when the three aspects come together in the triple form their power multiplies, reminding us of the beauty of all the parts of life and the cycles of the earth. "

Check out the episode of Bravo's "Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce" Season 3, Episode 1 (Click Here

Blessed Be!
