The impulse for this work is the author’s light skin-color which allows her to pass in the society as a non-Roma.

The self-portrait is a declaratory act of making herself visible as a Roma and simultaneously self-stylization as a black Madonna, i.e. an iconic female figure with whom Roma could identify.
