The tale of Salomé features the primary theme of a woman viewed as a spectacle and the “male gaze” in all its forms. From the seductive play of voyeurism, exhibitionism, and the taboos surrounding human desire. Merely gazing upon Salomé is dangerous and is a harbinger for death to those around her. As John the Baptist captures her illicit gaze, he awakens her lethal desire and subsequently captures the fascination of Herod’s by her performance of the Dance of the Seven Veils. The image of Salomé dancing and her seductive ways brings death to the prophet and in the end, herself.
