Anastasia is a soft peaceful and solemn piece, created to evoke a feeling of loss and oppression. The artist named her muse Anastasia as a culmination and dedication to her own personal journey. The meaning of the name Anastasia is resurrection and rebirth. The sadness in the muse’s face, her posture depicting her arms pinned behind her back and her lowered eyes demonstrate the level of oppression, control, and humiliation the muse was enduring. The positivity in this piece is the light that is blanketing her profile, beckoning her to break free and find her own worthiness and freedom.
