Whoever guessed it would be the luscious redhead was right. Allow me to introduce Salome. She is my 2nd Rubenesque doll and she will be available on ebay later today.
Salome is a biblical figure and an icon of tragically dangerous beauty.
For two thousand years, Salomeâ€™s legendary sensuality has been inspiring generations of artists to depict her likeness on canvas, in sculpture and through poetry, as if guessing it would decipher her true motives. Some believe she was a murderess with an agenda, while others think her nothing but a teenage pawn in somebody elseâ€™s game. Her conflicting image is poignant and deeply compelling to our collective imagination.
I believe that our lasting infatuation with the mythical Salome is an expression of an inherent psychological and societal need to combine the beautiful with the grotesque.
