The harpy is a rapacious monster depicted as a bird and a woman, a snatcher, and a derogatory term for a very unpleasant woman or a malicious woman with a vile temper. This creature is silenced, her feathers neat but still, her blood rushing to her vacant face. She has been halted and is still in a moment, upside down harkening the still life game from the Dutch Masters. The definition of the myth is seemingly used to vilify; in breath she is vilified and yet she is the one silenced by unprecedented circumstances, numbers, and wrath. The ongoing culture of femicide, violence against women, and people of non cis-male presentation, birthed this piece. Her silent death seems pointless; it hasn't caused change no matter how loudly the harpy screamed in life or death.
