"Salome" is a whimsical take on the biblical story. In lieu of St. John's head, our subject offers a teddy bear to the viewer. This piece takes the innocence and nostalgia of childhood and transforms it into something more enigmatic. This is a varnished work on masonite board and will require a frame in order to hang.
