Scorpion is based on the Argentinian Surrealist painter Leonor Fini’s Self Portrait With Scorpion (1938). The scorpion and single white glove is a motif that was commonly used by Surrealist painters.

"The terrifying female monster and the adoring girl-child are socially constructed stereotypes continued by the male surrealists. In order to promote the liberated, autonomous woman, Fini purposefully destabilized these stereotypes by combining each construct in a single figure, so that sphinxes can be protective and creative while girls can be sensual and aggressive.” -Wikipedia

This is dedicated to Leonor Fini. If you get a chance, look up Leonor Fini’s self-portrait. Find the single white glove and the hidden scorpion.
