Cleopocahontra herself is not visible, because she is a multitude, incapable of being condensed into a single body. She appears to the viewer according to their assumptions, limitations, and choices. This is a rendering of her appearance before the Governing Bodies of the New Romantic School of Vampire Colonialism, which has existed (and continues to exist) under different names throughout time and place. In this incarnation (despite her open stance) she is perceived as a potential threat due to her hidden hands and unbowed head. Her disparate dress and adornment results from her viewers desire to contextualize her strangeness within the familiar, while embodying what they most want from her.
