A representation of 13th century child-murderer Gilles de Rais done in a traditional Thai aesthetic. The aim here is to not celebrate or glorify the atrocity the man committed, but rather depict his wildly duplicitous nature instead. He lured countless children into his home under the guise of offering them the means to social elevation and instead brutally raped and murdered them. The monkey here represents this horrid quality in de Rais: to charm with one hand and kill with the other.
