Venus, Deconstructed

1. Salvador Dalí Tête Otorhinologique De Vénus, 1964/1970
2. René Magritte Les Menottes De Cuivre, 1931
3. René Magritte Tête, 1960
4. Erwin Blumenfeld Portrait of Houdon's Diane, 1944

While the 'egg' as a motif equals 'David', we still have to figure out the symbolic equivalent to 'Venus'. Until then, I'd like to invite you to ponder on the mutations of the female archetype and maybe come up with an icon of its objectification.

The distorted/distraction of beauty in form still retains its beauty. Beauty at birth, beauty at death, this is a beauty of internal objectification.
