In the artist’s vision, this thread is the thread of one’s life. each person is artifice and responsible for his own destiny, since he literally has his own life in his hands. In the case of women, they have taught us that our lives always depend on someone else, they have educated us to wait for Prince Charming to save us, and to put order and make us finally happy.
