Picasso's Dryad (1908) can best be described as the Terminator of the forest. According to dictionary.com, a dryad is a wood nymph or "deity of the woods" in classical mythology. This female form is primal instead of futuristic, but all the power of super human strength is present.

She stomps through the woods, one hand fashioned as a club, searching the trees for something to destroy. Her semi-featureless face cast in partial shadow conveys a sense of doom. The blacked out eye sockets and heavy wooden body tell us this deity will show no mercy. She is forever searching the moonlit woods.
