    This one is atypically small for a Morimura, measuring 120 x 150 cm, or roughly 4 x 5 feet. I chose it because it is the only work in his Art History series which apes a photograph rather than a painting. But what is the original work of art? Is it Man Ray's photograph, or Rrose herself? Is there an echo in here? Here's the original photograph, BTW

    Thank you. That is really interesting (although I don't like the color version).

    Look at those incredible hands in the Man Ray photograph.
