Bigamy Hood Towel by Judy Chicago
The Judy Chicago Bigamy Hood towel is just what the art world needs right now. How so? Judy’s work centers on celebrating the female form, allowing women to access and connect with affirming images. So, if, like most of us, you use a towel every day (or every other day if you want to keep this art keepsake especially clean) then a Judy Chicago Bigamy Hood towel may be what your world needs right now, too. It features an early image that appeared on both a painting and subsequently a car hood: ‘Bigamy Hood’. Says Chicago: ‘The imagery references uninterrupted connection, brought about by the deaths of both my father (when I was thirteen) and my first husband (when I was twenty-three). The symbols include a broken heart, double crosses, and a phallic form that yearns for the female-centered forms at the top of the image.’
60% cotton 40% polyester towel (machine wash and tumble dry); 60 x 40 inches; edition out of 500.
