I still have to get good pictures taken of it. I added so much to this piece in the final hours. There are a lot more layers of paper involved in this piece. I'm pretty happy with the way it came out. I was going for a sort of Victorian, story-book layout with a central framed image and four smaller images in the corners, all surrounded by foliage. But when you look closer it's disturbing and sexual. The piece is my commentary on how perverse Western civilization is, and indeed, any empire.
