DOWN | Femme Piquée Skateboard Deck
ORDERS SHIP LATE MARCH 2024.
This limited edition skate deck features Kehinde Wiley's 2008 painting, Femme Piquée Par Un Serpent Study III from his notable series, DOWN. This unique deck showcases the artist's reinterpretation of Auguste Clésinger’s 1847 sculpture of the same title, with Wiley's distinctive touch. Wiley's 2008 painting brings this iconic image to life on a high-quality skateboard deck, capturing the essence of vulnerability and sensuality. The central figure, clad in blue jeans, an orange hoodie, and a gold chain, reclines on a linen-clothed table, head tilted towards the viewer in a provocative stance. The exposed underwear hints at the vulnerability and eroticism of being off one's feet, turning a seemingly powerless moment into a bold artistic statement.
