Special order

I hereby present my first ever figurative depiction - a nude even! It is a combination of Matisse and myself, but it had to have some decorative features as well. The discrete pomegranates in the background are also symbolic.
The colors are the same as those of the last few projects, as I am not finished experimenting with them. The linocut is entitled "Venus pudica", inspired by the iconographic type of Venus shyly hiding her pudenda. I have made several variants, in natural colors, with the ink applied in various ways/combinations.
