       Louise Bourgeois, Nature Study, 1984-1994

I love the proud throat-base protuberance, a firm and almost genital ridge where we expect a hollow. The globed rows of breasts, & the lean strong back and feline frame somehow supporting their mass. The tail crossed over the strange spearlike phallus. The powerful haunches. This beautiful, terrible Egyptian cat-androgyne devourer-deity perched and waiting and ready.
