The Horse-Woman

During my last visit to London, I strolled through the Portobello Market and ended up finding a globe from the Victorian Era. This globe was not a typical one, instead it was a celestial globe which shows the location of the Zodiac signs according to the groups of stars.

I was immediately drawn to the Sagittarius sign which is characterized by the centaur- a creature who is half human, half wild horse. According to the myth, the centaurs were slaves to their animal instincts and desires. My project deals with the animalistic desires of humans, which tend to take advantage of the weak.
