This work was inspired by the myth of Hermaphroditus & Aphroditus.

The two-sexed Hermaphroditus became a symbol of androgyny or effeminacy, and was portrayed in Greco-Roman art as a female figure with male genitals.

Aphroditus was represented as having a female shape and clothing like Aphrodite's but also a phallus and a male name. It often appeared as a female lifting her dress to reveal male genitals, a gesture that was believed to have apotropaic qualities, averting evil influences and bestowing good luck.
