Explanations :

The Loss describes the fact that we all lost something, then we feel so lonely. It can be something or someone that made of us what we are, that made that we felt alive.
But finally all those events that hurt us so much built us, make us stronger and give us something in addition, something that will make us special! We only notice that (for those who notice it) a very long time later...

In this creation this loss is representated by the snail's cockle, like if before she was in it, this was on her back, just like when a snail leave it.
But look at her back, ya see what she got in return? Wings.
The tree branches on her head symbolize her thoughts, so deeply rooted in her mind that she cannot see the good days and hope that are coming to her! This represents our bloqued thoughts, when we feel so bad that we cannot help from having dark and depressive thoughts.
She also has elvish ears, the magicks she cannot see yet!


:pointr: So this creation is for those who actually feel bad, who have felt bad, who will feel bad. :heart:

This is just beautiful! I love your writing behind it, we all have those deep rooted thoughts and we have all lost someone or something. The snail is like the shell of a soul. Great capture of human emotion both the light and dark sides. :hug:

Breathtakingly beautiful!!! The texture and colors are so soothing and suit the entire work perfectly... the pose of the model is so innocent, soft, vulnerable... Which also fits the idea here so well... I am very impressed with your work... The way to put things together to create a Masterpiece in its own right!!! :clap:
