Religious ecstasy and sexual ecstasy are one and the same. The word ‘hysteria’ is derived from the word for ‘womb’. I am intrigued by the birth stories of both Western and Eastern deities, namely Christ and Buddha both of whom were conceived by seemingly immaculate conceptions. Both figures show a virginal womb being penetrated by a ghost or Divine force. Buddha came to his mother from an elephant in her dreams. The kanji for image 像 is the same as elephant, (apart from the left side radical meaning person). I juxtaposed these elements to create an ongoing series of Pop digital images based on Bernini’s Ecstasy of St. Theresa.
