Two major contributors to the invention of a feminine iconography in the 1970's are Mary Beth Edelson and Ana Mendieta. Edelson's method of inventing and defining female imagery concerns psychological and historical concepts. Mendieta's use of body art is seen in the form of regeneration symbols, silhouettes, and animal symbols that relate to primitive cultures which are part of her Cuban heritage.
