In Gnostic mythology, Sophia (“Wisdom”) is the feminine aspect of the pleroma, or the realm of light in which the totality of divine powers reside. In the Gnostic creation story, Sophia looked into the darkness outside of the pleroma and called out “Ialdaboth,” which sparked the origination of the Demiurge—the creator of our world. This piece represents the moment at which Sophia’s wisdom recognized the dark aspect outside of the pleroma, and both the positive and negative attributes of that catalytic moment.
