This is Medea. She has a self-titled metal band. She is also the heroine of a book of poems called Trobairitz (Anvil Press, Fall 2012) as her alter-ego, the medieval poet, Comtessa de Dia. This photo is by Victoria BC photographer Paul Saturley who has enabled Medea (formerly also known as The Abbess of Abjection) to transcend herself over the course of seven shoots since 2006. OCD Crow approves of rising above human limitations into mythical realms of art.
