Description

The beautiful woman pictured here sits broken-hearted; her heel, in accordance with folklore, ritually pressed to her vulva, preventing the likely egress of her ruptured self. She grasps the thorny stems of roses, long a symbol of love, and despairingly searches for understanding and succour.
The scarred stigmata of her tattooed skin speaks of pretence on the part of her erstwhile lover; who has promised abundance, and delivered nothing.
