This image was inspired by the legend of Lady Godiva. After trying to persuade her husband to lift the oppressive taxation she finally ended up giving in to his challenge and riding naked through the town ‘clothed in her hair’ to get him to lift the taxes.

From that original idea I went on to think how women have used their hair to hide behind, to ‘embellish’ themselves, and the legend of witches who stopped being witches when their hair was cut off. Seems there’s magic in hair, as it is one of our greatest weapons still and used in all sorts of ways to entice people to do what we want, which makes hair a double edged sword.

Another image created with a stock image of the beautiful Jessica Truscott (Faestock).
