The naked queen (Mayor graphic novel, s1, p78)

The naked queen

The queen becomes more and more naked as she gets sicker and sicker. Now she’s dead and bare. I try to parallel her undressing with the antithesis of a sexual undressing, and her nakedness becomes a kind of truth underneath her regal status.

The image of the Beatriz’s c-section is based on a woodcut from 1483. The process looks remarkably similar (apart from lack of good drugs, good hygiene, and isn’t the cut going the wrong way?)
