This is my "Lola Montez". Like the Lola Montez of old, she attracts men with her wiles and keeps her lovers enthralled through the force of her character. Yet, once you are sucked into her maelstrom, you are lost and led to your eventual collapse. What better way to depict this than by the connection to Medusa, who turned anyone that looked into her eyes to stone? The snake wrapped around her arms shows how, in her own mind, she is always tied down and unable to get ahead in life. Why is her left arm not complete? For she is not complete and has not found herself...
