Flower BrideMarriage of Heaven and Hell and the Transformation of the Bride into the Medusa Triptych are drawings which were made as a way of conjuring up the Bride sculpture installations. In them Lijn imagined the inner bride, the numinous and as yet featureless archetypal figure of the betrothed or possessed feminine.
