Ornament in reptile’s skin, silver, brass, iron, old strass
The Amazon ornaments are instruments of seduction, hybrid mixture of magical objects of primitive cultures and music hall sexy dress. My muse, elegant, fine and smiling, is in his attitude, as inspired by the Hindu god Shiva Nataraja as by the famous dancer Josephine Baker. The Cosmic Dancer four-arm pace that represents destruction and creation of the world is mixed with a gracious Venus wild and eccentric.The Amazon, fierce and violent warrior is not really represented. Of this myth, I keep the essence. The Amazon is, for me, a conquering woman who keeps away from the man. My muse has fun in the jungle with her friends the skins of animals, regardless of the male on the prowl.
