Giraffe Women (past) meets Modern Day Butterfly Woman (present)

by Lisa Pedersen |

What does one have with the other?

Google Burmese Giraffe Women and you will see the most beautiful women with rings around their necks; one for each birthday.  Amazing to think they were the inspiration for creating an abstract butterfly.

It was the muse and I, along with 8 other women who came under a white tent.  It was a ceremonial event, much like what we can imagine happens with tribal body artmaking.  They celebrate a rite of passage. 

With wrapped wire around her neck it became the base to make wings on the muse.  From there came collaged materials like fabric and edible sprinkles (metallic, of course), biodegradable confetti and even glitter.  The anchor was honey.  Honey was the glue and binding agent that brought together the new family of materials. 

Below is the video from our event this past 8/8 at 8 pm.


Interested in your own event where my muse and I come as a "live" interactive event?  Bathing suit on, underwear on, or perhaps topless, if the vibe is right and the audience is there and can see nudity as art which has been celebrated for centuries:  we are ready for our next event.


Until then, enjoy this video clip, courtesy of Reilly Auville.
