Mantis Devoratrice

– From the “Female Paradigm” series –

... Sexual cannibalism… when an animal, usually the female, cannibalizes its mate prior to, during, or after copulation…

The work was inspired by the action of female insects such as Mantis religiosa that devour their male during or after copulation and refers to emotionally damaged women who destroy or try to destroy men with good intentions.
