The artist (a young man) holds his head in his hands and slams it against the floor, his lips are twisted with effort, and a sly smile is seen on his face.
His physical strength is surprising in relation to his appearance – his body fragile but he resembles a Titan. He is clearly aware of his power.
The head is thrown to the floor so hard that it melts into it, they become one.
The laws of nature retreat. He is possessed by an uncontrollable laugh.
The museum guard (a middle-aged woman) looks at him blankly, sweat streaming down her forehead to her oily cheeks nesting in the folds of her neck. Her nipples protrude with horror. The curtain goes down.
[The motif of Transubstantiation will be repeated in the third act, right after the wild love scene between the artist and the guard; where at its peak, he will cut her tongue off with a machete and etc.]
