#15: More Archetypes! Forbidden Door.

Recently, I am on a kick regarding archetypes and emotions being conveyed via archetypes in an image. Here is another such image. I would be interested in knowing what you read into the image.  Hope you like it!

    Oddly, my first thought is of a chastity belt.

    Perhaps it’s because of the illusion of curvature, and the hint of a woman — her eyes veiled by a burqa?

    Protecting something as precious as gold, and which has a glowing warmth.

    Wow April,
    Firstly thanks so much for stopping by with your comment.
    Secondly, I had not seen the veiled woman until you mentioned it and now that is all I can see. Very nice.

    A little late getting here. So thanks, April, for finding the veiled woman in this wonderful image of Usha’s! A chastity belt, yes, once we see the veiled woman, then there is a good chance that people will also come up with that archetype. Usha, on the subconsicous, but intuitive level, you knew you just had to make this image.
