Scylla originally was a beautiful nymph who had been turned into a monster. The downfall began when she rejected the advances of a sea-god. In a jealous rage she was poisoned by the sea water and was turned into a revolting sea creature.

Symbolism: this piece is about the objectification of beauty. Continuously being objectify jades a soul turning it ugly inside and out. The vining roses symbolize that even under the stifling circumstances beauty can live on. The octopus is so encompassing you cannot tell whether it’s coming from the inside or out. The rust signifies a lifelong struggle.
