Predatory monsters, vultures body, wings, claws and women’s head. Harpies had an insatiable hungry. Their name means “snatchers”. They are regarded as harbingers of starvations and death. Today they manifest as anorexia and the self loathing effects all media has on our young girls. Stealing all that being born, female graced upon them. Leaving them with dysmorphia, no confidence, and self hatred.

This piece is symbolic of how women often treat other women.
