The exaggeration of impressions
and the illusion of grandeur are the aims of
the mysterious female figure of the artwork.
In History’s pages, for one single garment
in mauve color, thousands of seashells were melted down
in an extremely demanding dying procedure
and consequently, an exclusive privilege of few lords.
Sometime recognized as a distinctive feature
of demonstrating superiority, power and luxury
and sometime a symbol of passion, mystery and
nostalgic appeal - mostly to women -
"mauve" loudly marked, for many years,
the socio-economic stratification.
