Caul. Original acrylic painting on acid free paper, approximately 8" x 10".
Portrait of a woman with a caul. It was once thought to be good luck to be born with part of the amniotic sac attached. This is a surrealistic portrait of a woman with the placenta worn as a veil. Inspired by vintage medical illustrations and some vintage photographs of dissections.
