This way, the goddess’s fertile force became a serpent, a dog, a fish, a butterfly, a bee and other so many epiphanies. The birds appear once and again in Julieta’s photos, perhaps as a metaphor of the soul that takes flight, although there are more precise symbols, as the owl, an attribute belonging to the wise Palas Atenea. Iguanas, dogs, crows and some other animals move around in Latent Fauna, in Julieta’s photos appear peers of the woman as the same and not as beasts created by God to be dominated by mankind, as established by the Genesis. Julieta’s works have made it possible that landscape, woman and fauna recover that mystic union that integrated us into the universe, the alchemists’ “unus mundus”.
