  • About the work

Acrylic on banner printing.

This icon of Greta is set as the Virgin of Guadalupe, inside a frame of roses, a typical Marian flower, rests her feet on a moon, a symbol linked to the female divinity, while she crushes a snake, which here is the phallic symbol of an evil linked to patriarchy. He is holding a small koala in his hands, an animal now destined for extinction, while looking ahead. The image, with a titanic perspective, has as its background a huge vesica piscis, the mystical almond symbol of the meeting of two worlds: here nothing else is a huge rainbow sex toy, a symbol of female autonomy.
