This is an homage to Medusa, with gold as her snakes and octopi legs. She’s made of nothing but gold, mirrors and other non-human parts to create her silhouette. I love the myth of Medusa, that she’s been attributed as the personification of female rage.
It goes, she was raped by Poseidon in Athena’s temple and was transformed into her iconic monstrous form as punishment. Though there are discourses that it wasn’t punishment, it was protection granted to her and men’s predatory gazes so it would never happen again. Her image is often over the doors of women’s shelters, she’s a symbol of women’s safety & women’s rage – and quite frankly I often have wished that I could also be so monstrous, and so free from the constant gaze, predatory or otherwise of men.
