(Hmmm... first time posting to the new category; kewl.)
This is the only non-nude I'm posting from the most recent Demons & Fallen Angels
project, and it also isn't being offered as one of the prints. But I absolutely *adore* her smirk in this shot.
This series is entitled "Manman Brigitte" who is actually a death loa (goddess) in the Hatian voudon (voodoo) religion. As voodon is closely related to the Santeria religion, Brigitte can actually be traced in origin to one or more Catholic saints. She is, though, the guardian of the gates of the underworld; and (like her husband Baron Samedi, the Oingo Boingo logo) she is a foul-mouthed, cigar smoking, hot-pepper drinking, chicken sacrifice demanding goddess. She will protect your grave from desecration, though, provided it is properly marked with a cross.
Like many of the series in this set of shoots, this one contains the works of many artists equally as talented (if not more so) than me. I could never do shoots this complicated on my own.
