The depiction of a non-conventional, independent and also often inaccessible feminity took on a far more provocative turn in the decadent art of symbolism. In the work of the symbolist artists, female sexuality acquired the forms of alluring yet dangerous nymphs and mysterious and inaccessible sphinxes. This influenced the configuration of the 19th century female figure and to this day still prevails.
The term “Therianthropy” was used to describe spiritual beliefs in animal transformation. The iconic transformation from man and woman to animal is presented across all cultures and times and through the ages the Therianthropy has been assigned also to witchcraft and shamanism.
This pattern it´s inspired by the unapproachable feminity, the mythological creatures and witchcraft (of course).
