Like the hair cut short to reveal the neck. That was actually part of the process, or so I have read.

Thank you! I wanted to show her as immensely vulnerable in front of the machine. I might redo another version one day to have better details.

Yeah, poor her... History had tried many times to depict her as an egocentric bitch but in fact, as the other monarchs at that time, they grew with the certainty that they were adored by the people and that they were absolute. It was not a choice of life.

Thanks a lot! I hesitated before submitting the dev into the group, thinking it is too freaky, too bizarre. I am glad you appreciate. :)

A l'instar de Chateaubriand parlant de Lady Jane Grey... le corps et la tête de Marie-Antoinette (pas si canon que cela à vrai dire), se seront finalement embelli de ce qui fit leur supplice.
Un mort aussi tragique que magistrale vaut finalement mille fois mieux que tous les incisions minables de tous les liftings du monde...
Ah !... il n'y a rien au dessus des beautés d'échafaud !... ;)
