The Suicide



It took me some three days to do this, taking care of every detail. If you take a closer look, I have to let you know that nothing is arbitrary; I did put a meaning in every corner of this work.

See it as a book cover for the Romanian translation of The Virgin Suicides !

oh i'm speechless!
this is brilliant!

most eminent is of course the dark tree and how it seems to attack the fragile "dress" - the limbs of the tree look like a spider's legs when they move up the front part of their body to attack their prey.
& i think she escaped the tree - representing everything earthly - or she faded away?
no, it was an act of (her) power, that's why the tree seems to howl at what is left of her - the immaculate white dress, and also why the crow seems to have stopped mid-air with that startled expression..
yes, she escaped the world.

you perfectly visualized the concept of "virgin suicides" in this piece.
ah! it's marvelous! :heart:
