En Français:
Le portrait est merveilleusement équilibrée. le format carré (600x580) rappele la symbolique du nombre 4 (feminin et passif).
Il donne aussi une idée de volume (relief) et suggere la matérialité, le solide, le concret, le réel, la stabilité.
La dominante rouge évoque le sang, le vin, le feu, la révolte et contraste avec la blancheur diaphane du visage (innocence, virginité) et la signification symbolique du carré (matérialité).
Enfin le souci quasi-maniaque de la symétrie parfaite du visage évoque les productions artistiques des arts primitifs, de certains artistes de l'art brut et du thème du double.
Cette symétrie donne au visage le caractère "inexpressif" et hypnotique de la Gorgone Medusa dont le regard pétrifiait quiconque la regardait intensément.
Le modèle est parfait, très bien préparé (maquillage, cheveux se refermant sur un visage devenu immobile, innaccessible et immortel).
Le titre est bien choisi par rapport à l'aspect symétrique de la photo, mais j'aurai préféré un titre moins conventionnel et moins provocateur ou un nom propre plus ambigue comme "Adam" (Adam fut formé de la terre - à l'époque considérée comme carrée - prise a ses quatre extrémités. Dieu, pour perpétuer cette origine plaça une étoile à chacun des 4 points cardinaux: à l'orient, Anatolé; Dusis à l'occident; Arctos au nord et Mezenobris au midi. En réunissant les 4 premières lettres de ces étoiles, on trouve le nom d'Adam.
Bravo et Merci de m'avoir fait revoir ma mythologie lol.

I try with "Google translate"
The portrait is beautifully balanced. square format (600x580) reminded the symbolism of the number 4 (feminine and passive).
It also gives an idea of ​​volume (relief) and suggests materiality, solid concrete, the reality, the stability.
Dominant red signifies the blood, wine, fire, rebellion and sheer contrast with the whiteness of the face (innocence, virginity) and the symbolic meaning of the square (materiality).
Finally, the almost maniacal desire the perfect symmetry of face evokes the artistic productions of primitive art, some artists of art brut and the theme of the double.
This symmetry gives the face character "expressionless" and hypnotic Gorgon Medusa whose gaze petrified anyone looked intensely.
The model is perfect, very well prepared (makeup, hair closing on a face become immobile, inaccessible and immortal).
The title is well chosen in relation to the symmetrical appearance of the picture, but I would have preferred a title less conventional and less provocative or more ambiguous as more proper name "Adam" (Adam was formed of the earth - then considered square - has taken its four corners. God, to perpetuate the origin placed a star in each of the 4 cardinal points: the east, Anatole Dusis to the west, north and Arctos Mezenobris south. combining the first 4 letters of these stars, we find the name of Adam.
Congratulations and thanks for making me see my mythology lol

Ahhhhh. This is so mysterious! The gaze tells so much and seems rather innocent, but the lips and feathers somehow seem threatening.
Can I make a drawing of this? ;w;
