What's this, Ian, I wondering?:)

So was I, Inessa.

It was a sculpture in the art gallery that was so lifelike and so deathlike and yet too macabre, but it provoked in me images of some of the graphic stories I had heard of destructive family feuds in some cultural settings of generational hatred. (In this forum I won't be more specific except to say it fits a couple of different situations in Europe.)

The real woman was a fellow viewer at the gallery whom I did not know, but who was willing to be a model in my photograph. She seemed to appreciate the work and yet seemed to understand, so I asked her to help me understand by her becoming part of the sculpture.

I thought she conveys the title perfectly for me. It was about understanding or unravelling the intrigue of love and war, seduction and hatred that are perpetuated by generational violence and payback.

Does that help you see? You may see otherwise.

Thanks for the visit and recognition of the surreal, Monica. Much of the philosophy and significance of life and death, relationship and conflcit is truly surreal!
