A fantastic conceptual work of art! The books around the picture frame and the ship in the bottle represents journeys while the apple on the right side symbolically is another representation of knowledge ) aside from the books. When one opens a book, we travel to some other realm. When one takes a journey by boat, one travels to a destination. This young woman is wading into the waters that pour out from the picture frame. It is clear that she is about to undertake a journey that will be full of wonder and discovery.
