"This piece was inspired by the biblical tale of Salome, the dancer who, on the orders of her mother Herodias, danced before King Herod and so entranced the king that he offered her whatever she desired. In accordance with her mother's orders, she requested the head of John the Baptist. While historically, Salome has been depicted as a seductress, I also wanted to depict how charming and entrancing she must have been, such that being in her presence almost felt like drowning. Thus, for this piece, I utilized poppies-- flowers symbolizing death and dreams-- to convey such a theme. I undertook this project primarily as a form of dealing with depression." -Gina
