Details

Hildegard (1098-1179) was a Benedictine abbess and visionary. Through much of her life, she experienced powerful visions, some of which she dictated and which are contained in three volumes. She illustrated these texts herself, in works of unique power and originality. She also wrote poems, plays, hymns (many of which today can be found in recordings), and works on medicine and natural history. She advised popes, kings, and bishops. Hildegard was widely known for her knowledge of the curative powers of natural objects, especially herbs, and is sometimes regarded as one of the sources of modern medicine. She did all this during a time in which women were accorded little respect as artists and intellectuals, yet the effects Hildegard’s experiments and advancements in music, art, and healing continue to this day.

This small statue of Hildegard was hand carved by Hank Schlau and hand painted by Karen Schlau. It is made of a resilient architectural material that can be placed indoors our outdoors.
