  • Kneeling in profile, her body rotates on different planes.

     

    With her full faced pouting lips and a seductive glance,  

    she lifts her golden locks, she twists her lithe torso towards us.

     

    Yet, her hips, legs and feet are seen only from in profile.

     

    With Désirée, Salinas gives a sly nod to the tomb paintings of ancient Egypt, which depicted the human body on two planes:  the upper body and head are turned towards the viewer and the lower torso and legs are shown in profile.
