No maids in the Antipodes

 

Note from the artist:

No Maids in the Antipodes is a family portrait - or is it?

It was inspired by theDiego Velázquez painting Las Meninas (The Maids of Honour) which was painted in 1656 and about which Wikipedia writes:

"The work's complex and enigmatic composition raises questions about reality and illusion, and creates an uncertain relationship between the viewer and the figures depicted. Because of these complexities, Las Meninas has been one of the most widely analyzed works in Western painting."
