LEXA KOM TRI KRU PORTRAIT
“I loved her too early, she loved me too late”.
After a week i finally finished this. My intention was to recreate Lexa portrait using pieces of her and trying to emphasise her true self.
She is the commander so i put the gear to symbolize HEDA, and i searched for a jewel dress that look like her armor. Since she is TRIKRU i made a living throne whose branches are part of her. Dots symbolize Clarke. In the bg i made the aurora borealis because nature and green ( trees ).
I got inspired by @moishpain lexa fan art.

WORTH PARIS TRAINED SATIN EVENING DRESS with PASTE JEWELS, 1910-1912.

as all my jewish followers and friends know, we have a holiday coming up! the featival of purim is this sunday. purim celebrates hidden miracles and hidden beauty and hidden saviours. there’s a lot of hiding. that’s why we dress up!

i’m aware that the vast majority of gentiles and a lot of jews don’t fully know the story of purim, which is recorded in the scroll of esther, or megillat esther. the megillah’s my favourite story, and has so many amazing midrashim (bit like rabbinical fanfiction) that i study year round. this story, which is the story of how a young jewish woman saved our people from a genocide, has a lot of parallels with our current political situation in the u.s., so i thought now would be a great time to tell the story!
