Again, a deceptively romantic and sensual picture with a totally different message. This is about the traps we set ourselves and the traps we're caught in - from self perception to role models we find ourselves tangled up in sometimes barely visible constraints - the way we look, the way we behave, what we're supposed to do and what we want to do - signified both by the (outer restraints) spiderwebs and the (inner restraints) ribbons and bow. The sky and clouds can be seen two ways - the striving for 'enlightenment' and the freedom from the restraints we seek, or maybe it's just about the way we often walk around with our heads in the clouds, totally unaware of the constraints that hold us back? There are fragments of fairy tale princesses in there as well - I can see Rapunzel and he hair, Sleeping Beauty and Snow White both asleep and all of them waiting for Prince Charming. However, in real life there rarely is a Prince Charming to rescue us and, personally, I'd rather rescue myself. LOL
