A symbol of the erotic and dangerous woman, the femme fatale.
"Mucha created expressly for the L'Estampe Moderne, a monthly portfolio of four lithographs issued between 1897 and 1899. His rendering of Salome presents the legendary temptress as a Byzantine gypsy-diaphanous apparel, raven tresses hung with rings, plucking an ancient stringed instrument, no doubt to accompany herself in the Dance of the Seven Veils."
