Tierra Mujer presents mangroves as a sacred fertility goddess. The installation is a significant shift within Samuel Lind’s practice. Through it, Lind depicts the long-standing Loíza belief that a mangrove forest is a place of power where the surrounding community draws healing, support, and subsistence. The conviction stems from the belief in Osaín, the orisha (deity) of wild plants and healers who embodies the mangrove forest in Loíza. The pose of the goddess also resembles that of the Atabeyra petroglyph found in Utuado, Puerto Rico and which represents the Taíno people’s goddess of fertility. The figures included in the altar have been gifted to Lind or created by him.
