The Devil

 The Devil assists the female and male in the dark dances of their own unique hell, one they have created for themselves. The female figure is engulfed in a spiderly cocoon, once silky is now hardened into a prison - she is blindfolded, and so is the small head of the one she is obsessed with in her hands. Together they sit in wretched suspension, seeing nothing but their own inner agony. The male's cocooned and bloody right arm and bleeding genitals speak of sexual deviance, neglect of self, immorality..the great yawning mouth behind him embodies the sound of the black void in his heart, which compells his self abuse. This is the Devil's stage, and the balconey above looks down upon the scene reminding us of the great theatre of life.. we are its players and observers, learning great lessons of the heart through passions and frailties.
