H10-3 Theodora is a laminated giclée print on aluminium composite, screen printed with glitter. In this print, Hirst creates an asymmetrical pattern composed of butterflies. Lines of glittering red cut the composition horizontally into thirds and vertically in half. Theodora is dominated by hues of red complimented by the black details on the wings of the butterflies.
The print is part of Hirst’s collection H-10 The Empresses (2022). This collection is composed of five gliclée prints all of which show intricate patterns composed of red butterflies. This is the only print in the collection which features an asymmetrical pattern. The prints are all named after famous Empresses from various historical periods. This print is named after the Byzantine Empress Theodora who is remembered for implementing a number of significant religious and social policies after marrying Emperor Justinian in 527 CE.
