"SELF-CENSOR" 36"x36" by Nina Benedetto © 2010


The proverbial monkeys which “see, hear, and speak no evil” are perched atop the X-ray view of a female torso.   The skeletal outline shows that she shields her breasts and genital area, even though no part of her interior is hidden from the fluoroscopic view. 

The fig leaf is depicted with bees and red birds. 

On the left side, a dark woman asks for silence, while on the right a tongue is licking an ice cream cone.  

Jim, a Black Crow, symbolizes our repressive American social history.

Feathers float around as thoughts, stories, or “things that are in the air”, while elephants have memories of events that are never forgotten.
