This mug looks to be inspired by The Veiled Virgin, a Carrara marble statue carved in Rome by Italian sculptor Giovanni Strazza (1818–1875), depicting the bust of a veiled Virgin Mary. The veil in Giovanni's sculpture gives the appearance of being translucent, but in fact is carved of marble. The technique is similar to Giuseppe Sanmartino's 1753 statue Veiled Christ in the Cappella Sansevero in Naples. Here, THOR has created a very similar sculpt to The Veiled Virgin, but through the veil is a skull and instead of hair braids, there is a crown of tropical flowers.
