Maria Fernanda Cordoso is an international artist who works and resides in Sydney Australia. Her practice is heavily influenced by 'animal life'. In this exhibition titled 'The Art of Seduction' Maria explores the world of the Australian Jumping spider, popularly known as the 'peacock spider' which is 3-5mm in reality!! The spiders are Cardoso's 'artists'. This print depicts part of the male spider's anatomy that is used to entice it's beloved in an amazing dance of seduction!! The colours are extraordinary!!

The body of work which this print came from represented Australia in the Cuenca Biennial in 2016.
