The piece is one in a series based on secret and mystery. It is intentionally ambiguous and insinuates contradictory messages. Emerging life, mournful death, closely bonded friends, deep dark secrets, the unfathomable darkness, and safe shelter: these are some responses people have made to this work. To me, a successful piece is one that causes the viewer to stop and to think. I can in no way dictate their thoughts. Instead, I am to direct viewers to their own questions and hope they draw their own conclusions.
