Artwork description:

In ancient China up to the early 20th century, women are all essentially being raped as an effect of their position in a male-dominated society that holds them as economic captives. The master visits his concubines not so much for pleasure as to keep them all in their places and remind them of their duties. (One, of course, is to produce male children.)



The red lantern is raise in front of a concubine's living quarter to let everyone knows that she is selected to serve the master that night.

Materials used:

oil and 24 kt gold leaf on panel
