The “high tide” that occurs on the day of the full moon comes from the fact that 70% of the earth is made up of seawater. This phenomenon is caused by the gravitational pull of the moon on the earth’s surface. Since our bodies are also made up of 80% water, it is said that the human body itself is also susceptible to the gravitational pull.

The female body and the phases of the moon have been considered inseparable. Not only positive emotions, but also negative emotions such as fear, loneliness, and anxiety are said to increase. It can alter the symptoms and cycle of menstruation, a phenomenon unique to women. It has been scientifically proven that women become more nervous, more irritable than usual, want to eat more food, and become somewhat sexually daring. It is truly amazing how the light of the full moon can affect a woman’s physical rhythm.

In Greek mythology, Danae was conceived by Zeus, who transformed himself into a golden rain, and gave birth to Perseus. This work depicts an evening of a woman holding an umbrella to the rain that is falling unilaterally, defying her heightened feelings and gravitational pull caused by the full moon.
