Judith with the Head of the Artist

2020

H78cm x W 36cm x D 30cm

Glazed earthenware and mixed media

Figure made for the Cranach: Artist and innovator Exhibition at Compton Verney.

This figure is a reworking of the story of Judith and Holofernes, in my version, Cranach's naked model leans against a fig tree with her foot on Cranach's freshly decapitated head.
