Daily Deviation

Given 2007-09-04
"Year of the Pig III by ~temabina really wowed me. To me it's how people say women are portrayed as pieces of meat, and how grotesque that comparison is. The smooth, voluptuous lines of her breasts really contrast with the waxy pig leather and show you how beautiful the female form is." - =pendlestock ( Suggested by pendlestock and Featured by MissShyly )

Wow this is just... wow, really interesting. I like the relative cleanliness of the pig heads, it makes it seem so casual. And of course I love the juxtaposition of supple clean nudity with the disturbing, obstude slaughtered animal heads. It's so interesting.

Usually I would have really disliked something like this, but this one... actually looks really good. Always I don't like real death to be part of any sort of art, and I still dislike it in this case as well, but somehow I also really like this.

Dammit, you tear me apart!

Actually, if anything, this portrays a relatively respectful view on animals. Instead of having cold steel and layers of protective clothes between the slaughtered animals, there is only skin. Closer and much more down to Earth, more honest, somehow.

But still. Ack.

This is a rather unique shot indeed! I love the breast on the model. Thank you for not just throwing in the largest pair you could find for the page views.

As far as the subject mater goes, while this is a rather shocking picture, I think that's what makes it unique. Its almost a beauty and a beast like concept to it, like its saying that beauty killed the beast in a way.

Ah, I'm just rambeling but this is good shot. Great work on it. The lighting is good, the angle is nice, and of course the concept is rather shocked. I don't know but the pig's eye seems to make it even creepier. O_o

Aw, don't feel that way. I say its more of a unique pic than anything else. And remember...there is far, FAR worse on dA.

Hell, the heads could have been in worse condition than THAT but you kept it to a low but shocking level, allowing the viewer to have some shock without being TOO shocked.

ok, so maybe you find pig heads shocking, but in Latvia, you can find them in market place, they're not very rare , it's a common food here, it's a cultural difference I guess, that you don't find any meaning for this....

Ha, ha. U have succeeded in horripilate some viewers. Moust of them have esitations concearning your picture: "I like it...but". I like your picture. It's a contrast. I see it like life itself, bouth beutiful and grotesque. For me art has to have a meaning. Does your picture have a meaning? A good art has different meaning, depending on the viewer. It's a beautiful model u chose, nice body, nice neck, and the few hairs that can be seen over thea pearls(fake)... For me is like the beautiful Greek godess Venera, sorownded by superficial people("pigs"), common people, all the same, simply meat, with stemps on them. I also see it like a simble of contrast, the Contrast itself etc.

Imagine, that people centuries ago weren't killing more than they needed and weren't keeping the animals in cages to small for them to move around and weren't gutting them alive or killing them by throwing them into boiling water, as they do today on a mas scale everyday.
