Merry Christmas: Raquel Welch crucified by Terry O’Neill

Raquel Welch On Cross, taken in 1970 by Terry O’Neill.
“When shooting the original Terry said: ‘I wanted to symbolise the dilemma facing Welch as the female sex symbol of the decade – “crucified” for her sexuality by the movie industry and the wider public who did not take seriously as an actress. It was deemed too controversial for use at the time, and wasn’t published until 30 years later on the cover of The Sunday Times Magazine.” (dailymail.co.uk)
….And Merry Christmas. I am not the author of this image.
