This is my interpretation of Picasso's Seated Bather of 1930. I think my version is just different enough to count as an interpretation, rather than as a straight copy. I find this figure very compelling mostly because of the head, with jaws and teeth that look like another set of strong arms with sharp fingers. Someone I read said that Picasso expressed his fear of women more strongly than any other artist, and that this is an excellent example.
