Almost "patriotic" what with all the red,white and blue, gal. Now I understand what you meant when you wrote of the veil. Hey, I'll give ya all kinds of extra points 'cause I have never really actually even attepted a veil.

The attitude in her face and how she carries it to her chest is very interesting, though, and, being a "full field kinda guy, the rest ain't so bad, either.
Just a trim, eh?

This is simply beautiful Zeppellina, and it suits my mood for today so wonderfully! A pleasure, as always, to enjoy your work.

You know, Boneman, I never really thought about the red white and blue bit when I did it......isn`t that weird!!!
But you`re right...there seems to be a lot of red, white and blue there!!!
Strange one!
I think you`d be good at doing viels!

Hi Jlb, good to see you again!
I`m glad you like this image, and glad it became a good part of your day...
a wonderful compliment!

Great work, as per usual, Zep.

Christ-as-bride -- nice reworking of that metaphor. Even the way she holds her head is very iconic.

I like all the layers in your work: intellectual, historical, visual. The colors and patterning are great.

The henna on the hands complements the hair so well, and contrasts the (to my eyes) Western wallpaper-like backdrop.

I find the doubling of the dent above her lips and the highlighted clitoris, too -- a pun? Both surrounded by lips, of a kind -- what speaks louder? Is a bride expected to speak? A lot spirals off of that one juxtaposition.

Great stuff.

I just LOVED the bride... she fits my image of the perfect woman... where can I find her dear Zeppelina???

Hi Zeppellina. I just came across your blog. I really enjoy all your pictures, but this one especially is startlingly beautiful. A bit provocative, sexy and deep, it's the kind of picture I'd like to hang on my wall and look at again and again. Doug mentions a lot of the things I thought of too. Being very interested in icons, this is a treat for me. I also like how I didn't see her dress the first few times I looked. Veil and unveiling in one, and with the decorations on her dress and pantyhose, she looks like a temple of love, pleasure, and wisdom.
