Outstanding design and execution! Though it may not be what was meant by the artist, I see in it the symbolism of someone anguished in trying to figure out who they really are, how they will make a way in freedom, or both. In any event, a provocative object d' arte. Cheers!

The puzzle pieces make for an amazing background element in this one. The figure at the top has such an interesting pose that fits the piece beautifully. I also love how you have her chained to the puzzle.

I love the puzzle pieces, they're a really nifty element in this piece.  I think they help add depth while also bringing another layer or meaning into the piece and that's wonderful.  Great work :)

Wow this is very well done and structured! I love the interlocking clogs as well as the corresponding puzzle. The girl at the top who is doing the splits also fits in quite well with the overall picture as she also represents some weighing scales, another example of a basic utensil of measure. I's anatomy and the way this has all been technically and neat.

Thank you for that comment. Its exactly what I was going for in reference to the position of the girl acting as a balace to tie in with the cog mechanics. Much appreciated :)

This is a really interesting, thought provoking drawing.  I love the shade gradation and the very strange combination of elements.
