Final Project Picture

My final project for art class. I love my original title! Anywho...the project was supposed to portray our view on a particular issue in the world today. It could be political, personal, social, whatever. I chose to show how outward appearance is glorified these days. So I did some cosmetcis products, and pearls (which were and are usually a symbol of a wealthy, beautiful young woman).
The apple in the middle is refering to the mythology of Paris and the golden apple in ancient Greece. Basically, if you don't know the story, there was a contest between the three godesses Hera, Athena and Aphrodite. The prize, a golden apple. Originally Zeus was suppose to judge and hand out the prize to the most beautiful, but he wasn't about to get caught up in that. So Zeus chose Paris, a mortal, to judge the beauty contest. Though all three were extremely beautiful Paris ended up choosing Aphrodite because of her bribe to give him the most beautiful mortal woman if she was chosen.
