In this piece, you can see the depiction of a woman who believes they're in control. For me, the colored parts represent her ego (knife, lips, heels), the grey parts (body and demons) represent her soul. Her knife doubles as a puppet handle because she feels she can only take control by facing her inner demons with ferocity. When she battles her demons, she's essentially stabbing herself in the back, hurting her soul as represented in her unpleasant appearance. To protect her ego, she wears lipsticks and heels, believing she is empowered and in control. She speaks using her ego. She walks in ego. Her eyes are hollowed because she is blind to this.

Although everyone faces unique challenges in their own ways, choosing to battle with one's ego instead of their soul is always detrimental. The ferocious woman is a representation of people who are determined to take control over their life but place their ego over their soul. 

Instead of trying to control our problems by silencing them, we should try to heal them. The ferocious woman is an ugly reminder that the only way to truly get rid of our problems isn't by holding them back, but by letting them go. That hiding ourselves is not helping ourselves -it's hurting ourselves. 

We encourage anyone experiencing troubles to open up to someone who can help. Unfortunately, therapy can be expensive, but there may be resources available. In the event you're seeking counseling for domestic abuse or sexual violence, The Purple Door employs a team of counselors who can help. With every purchase of the The Ferocious Woman, an additional donation is made towards The Purple Door.
