Venera and Death, is a work of Safir-Rifas’s collection.

Venera and Death. The theme of the painting is inspired by the vision of women in antiquity and in our times. The woman has the power of life and death and since ancient times women were either worshiped or condemned. “Venera e morte” is an oil painting on canvas with glued mirror shapes. The mirror is a symbol of vanity and mortality. The painting is made up of two triangular modules that form a pyramid when joined. The triangular shape of the canvas recalls the symbol of femininity. This painting symbolizes life and death and represents “The Maiden or Venera and Death”. In it are present the various aspects of the woman: the beautiful maiden, the holy mother, the mechanical girl, the sex doll, the diabolical temptress, the old lady, the demon or death, we are all and none at the same time, but ultimately, we are only human.
