A Re-Imagined American Beauty

American Beauty Barbie, Pittsburgh, 2015

I wanted to pay homage to the movie American Beauty but didn't quite think that the roses and bed of rose petals was, how shall I say...quite right for representation of female genitalia, or even passion, despite what red roses are supposed to represent.  No, I contend that lilies are much better suited to be strewn over a nude female form.  Just behold the voluptuous nature of Georgia O'Keeffe's masterful handiwork with the lily as proof.
I used dried Purple Prince Orienpet lilies that I plucked from a clutch of them growing in my mother-in-law's yard.  A perfect fit.
