WISE VA -- In Gallic mythology, Nantosvelta was a protective goddess. Symbolized as the goddess of
water, nature, valleys and streams. Sacred places in the Celtic religion were signified by the presence
"This series of images confirm that sanctity," Allio said. "The interplay of light and
motion represent the peace, purity and force of water. The nude figure conveys the bare human
intercourse with water."
Model Trisha Dove emersed herself in the role of water goddess. In order to obtain some of these magic
moments, she went neck-deep in the chilly mountain stream. She emerged with glistening water droplets
clinging to her smooth skin, a huge smile on her face and a twinkle in her eyes - evidence of a unique
and exciting experience.
Allio was born in the Commonwealth of Virginia, USA. He is a graduate of the
University of Virginia with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Communications and Visual Arts.
His fine artworks of nude subjects have been exhibited worldwide.
