Inspired by Bernini's legendary sculpture The Rape of Proserpina c.1621 which achieved the illusion of  depth of hands pressing into flesh.  This image takes that study one step further with multiple hands touching her skin in a dream/fantasy state of mind. The effect was achieved with multiple photographs of the males hands merged together while the female model stood still.
