Blood Moon

The “Blood Moon” was created while reading Rainer Maria Rilke's “Letters to a Young Poet”, where he suggests the possibility of male menstruation and child-bearing:
"And in the man too there is motherhood, it seems to me, physical and mental; his engendering is also a kind of birthing, and it is birthing when he creates out of his innermost fullness..”. Moreover he contemplates the lonesome existence of the artist, beyond definitions of gender, while in labor of giving birth to a masterpiece.
The work revolves around it's own axis and is in constant rotation.
On top of the moon, a little transsexual doll urinates blood.
