"Adele Bloch-Bauer I" (1907, Wien). DETAIL: Paintings inside paintings. Studded with precious metals. Opulent patchwork of ornaments, where Mycenaean gold mingles with Byzantium.

However, the triumph of this goddess is also her prison, captured in her precious tapestries, sealed alive inside a wall of gems.
