It's interesting, but, upon looking at this now I feel that his pose - with the hands folded together seemingly penitently - means he recognizes that he did her wrong, and accepts his punishment in order to make it right. Blood has to be spilled to pay for wrongdoing
This is really fantastic! I love the concept and the animated butterflies. I find it really interesting that her hair is everywhere with butterflies all over it. Her dress is an interesting touch too. What's the story behind this? I'd love to know!
I'm loving the moving butterflies but the symbolism is what made me favorite this piece... I had a complete rundown of all of the possible symbolism when it flew out of my head and into the stratosphere because your piece is so awesome.
Alexiela... this is something which touches me on a personal level. I still think you are using symbolism very well and your work like this is very telling. Fantastic storytelling skills with a static picture.
