Am I looking at some kind of religious rite being performed in a cathedral designed by Le Corbusier? In reality, it's a BTS of the MUA working on the model's make-up before the shoot, below deck on an old ship.

I've played around with this image off and on during the year since it was recorded. Today, it occurred to me that it would be a great submission for the "Behind The Scenes" theme, so I dusted it off (again) and finished it to this point.

Hope you like it as much as I do :)
