The Crystal Blood by Bulgarian photographer Silvia Bratanova from Sofia is tribal-like and futuristic.

Primped by makeup artist and hair stylist Slav Ivet, fashion model Alexandrina has her face painted with multi-chromatic colors of red, black and white body paint. Styled by Marina Milcheva, the model dons pieces from Comme des Garcons by All U RE dresses, Rick Owen tops, Jean Paul Gaultier boots, Muse Shop skirts and accessories from Neva Balnikova among others.

What is worth mentioning about the Crystal Blood shoot by Silvia Bratanova, which juxtaposes elements of aggressiveness and vulnerability, as well as mortality and immortality, is the glass crown that Alexandrina is seen wearing. Created by Wings Creative Studio, the crown is made of four mirrors broken by Bratanova. The shattered pieces are then glued and secured to complete the crystal crown.
