Female Black Woman Bronze Sculpture Stepping Into My own Skin Bronze

My female bronze black woman sculpture “Stepping Into My Own Skin” is defining who she is on her term. She claims.
“It is I, who will define my standard of beauty, of femininity, of  womanism.”

Also a symbol of lust, of admiration. The black woman depicted is the figure of Manuel’s grandmother, mother, aunts, sisters, cousins, and daughters.
Painfully aware that once their bodies reach a certain age, they will be exploited. No matter how they’re dressed. At a certain age, their bodies become a commodity for the gaze of entitled men. Justified by patriarchy, and centuries of resentment of its influence.
To support their men, the women comply by stepping out of their skin.
In a lustful fanciful dance of pleasure and guilt.
