I like how minimal it is, only her hair and the high heels are black. Without arms, her back is like a plaster sculpture, the skin is smooth and refined. There is no dramatic shadow on the skin, only the edge of her back was slightly outlined, as a compositional decision to be symmetrical, it indeed works better without heavy shadows that might break the balance. The position of the high heels is quite interesting, it extends from her ears down to her shoulders, and then forms some symmetrical shapes in the negative space. I love the overall structure a lot, it is simple yet still draws my attention.
