‘The Axe (and the Waving Girl)’ takes on the subject of the fairy tale, a subject Maher returns to again and again. The young female figure is waving to an axe, which is leaning precariously against a tree. Distance and closeness, and the contrast in scale, unsettle and disrupt the natural balance, as much as the apparent menace.
