Mantis (March 2011)
Literally the title, this is about the passion of woman. I speculated: “what if they actually drain the life out of each other?”. This image signifies the intensity of the passion of a woman’s love. At the height of their physical pleasure, she swallows him whole. He becomes lost in her, giving his whole being in that one moment. forever her prisoner.
This is inspired by Murakami’s novel Norwegian wood (2000), where the protagonist, who was included again in the life of the heroine, falls in love with her completely after one night of sponteneous passion, unable to free himself from her tangled web.
