Marvellous multi-layered work. The use of the cruciform pose, the allusion to Mary from the colours of the dress, and the reference to St.Jerome's views on how Christian women should live is adroitly done.

I was inspired in most cases by real climbing poses. Here, I modified it so that it evokes more the crucifixion.

It seems to me she is longing for real climbing rocks because of her looking direction. But just her clothing is a little bit unpractical for climing sports. How good that she only climbs up pin nails :-)

there is often a part of the surreal in my images. a certain degree of realism, is only the first step to enter the escalation of the meaning of my images.

I love the idea behind your project and am all in favor of encouraging women to escape the male gaze and "reconquest" the spaces of power and privilege long claimed by men! My initial reading wasn't as astute as JoeJarrah's, but I love his interpretation :-) Interesting concept, nicely executed!

Oh yes, it is a mixture of realism and surrealism in it, it is very thrilling!

La cru-si-fiction inspire depuis toujours, j'aime bien cette version

Another I love for many of the same reasons. I found Joachim Patinir's St. Jerome in the desert and then looked up St. Jerome. I can see that Jerome's ideas about a pure life didn't make things easy for the women who believed in his ideas. I learned much and enjoyed viewing the picture even without all that I've learned.

Joe Jarrah est non seulement un gars très cultivé, mais aussi un grand déchiffrerur de symboles!

I also love your idea to show the difficult ascent of women :-) Its difficult but worth it!
