A synthesis of plant and human type. Mythological allusions to Daphne and Apollo. Lush growth, heralding in spring. Growth, health and vitality. Ideas about being one with nature. Breasts become pendulous fruits like in Wifredo Lam’s The Jungle. Red like tropical fruits such as mangoes. Rooted in the land, earth-based. Aspiration/reaching ever upward and outward like a strong tree. Dramatic stance, leaning far back, theatrical. Pre-Columbian face on her right - ancestry. Flower - transformation; blossoming of potential.
