This image refers to the Greek mythological figure of Pandora and the painting of the same name by the symbolist artist Odilon Redon. In the myth Pandora releases evil from the box given to her by Zeus. Comprised of dark shadows and theatrical lighting this image plays tricks on the eye. Do the deep shadows contain faces in clouds? Is Pandora's dress made of smoke or shadow? The natural twist of wood suggests a tree...is she on stage and behind her is a painted backdrop? it becomes difficult to tell what we are seeing, what level of reality we are party to and he picture beckons us to join in the reverie.
