Classical Beauty Submerged
Classical Beauty Submerged contains an image of a classical sculpture. This image is the central image that forms the basis of the context of this woodcut. The image of the draped figure was once considered an ideal body depiction, but by today's context she would be considered overweight. Below her is water and beneath the water is what we might consider the ideal body type. The scars that cover her body are the scars of this idealization.
