Labrys, 2023

Plexiglass and 3D-print
40 cm x 40 cm x 20 cm

Labrys, a double-headed axe, has its origins in the ancient Minoan culture on the island of Crete around 2000 BC.

Most researchers consider it a symbol of divine power, particularly associated with the female deity, and it evokes stylized images of vulvas, which are considered "feminine" symbols in many cultures. In the 1970s, the Labrys gained a new role as a strong symbol of the feminist movement. It also became a symbol of pride and identity for some LGBTQ+ communities, especially within lesbian feminism and activism. By combining multiple double-headed axes, AliPaloma creates a powerful object that emphasizes the importance of solidarity and collective empowerment.
