Maneater by Davol White

I know this reveals a cynical view of woman. In my defense it was drawn a long time ago by a 1987 version of me while in the infantry. I love women, but matters of love remain torn between what one wants and what one gets. Homosexuality maybe offers an easy way to intimacy, but I can’t get past the hairy ugliness of men, plus I have hemorrhoids. Thus I remain condemned to love and admire women as the work of art that they are, if only alone and from afar.

    Hi Davol…you are honest and brave to say it so. There are women,that think quite similar about men, though they are not lesbian…just they try to imagina that men are something that they have invented in their Souls…so the reality is far from it and they think the are pushy, abductioning of their will, rapist and if not quite violent….they are afraid of the Animus inside.
    Since man is man, there is a kind of image that depicts the “woman” as a “man-eater”. May be this has degenerated into mysoginy….why not..? kind of afraid of that sucking womb that for one hand gives pleasure and life but that for the other is the true source or origin of Death as well.
    I love your work…because it is honest, symbolic and not why it reminds me of Dante´s Inferno….a true passage to an initiation that may be Woman exerts upon all human being…
    By the way…sorry about your hemorrhoids…..and by the way too…not all men are hairy..I can give account of that..beleive me!!

  • Thanks for the comment. It’s just an old drawing by a lonely infantry soldier.
