There is an ethereal quality to these images with Klimtian overtones of sex and death. Having the models lying quietly face down allows us to view them from above like we are watching them resting, maybe guarding them. That she can’t see us makes her almost vulnerable as we quietly observe her beauty. The structure was created by taking just a single line of scans down the body, making a wonderful, elongated image focusing on the shapes of the body sections, with just hints at either end of what she is lying on. In this case Michelle’s skin colouring and auburn hair worked beautifully with a fur throw I have, made from the skins of some kind of wildcat. Hence the title.
