Fortuna gets its name after the Roman goddess of luck and fortune. Fortuna (the goddess) is often depicted with holding a cornucopia in one hand to represent good fortune, and a rudder in the other to represent her power to steer luck like a boat, in directions both good and bad. My Fortuna effectively uses my likeness to illustrate the same point. Our lives are made up of a mixture of good and bad luck, of winning and losing — none of which we have any control over. Instead, we can only reach for the opportunities as they come.
