The first in a three part series exploring the juxtaposition of a Kewpie Doll head onto the body of The Venus of Willendorf. The background symbolises hopeful beginnings, the prehistoric valley where the sculpture was found.The dawn of history with so much potential . The figure symbolises the waste of womens potential through history. From the powerful presence of the Willendorf sculpture whose gaze is self regarding to the beseeching gaze of the kewpie doll. This “venus” looks hopeful but culture renders her plastic and infantile.
