I wanted this piece to represent my dream for "rebirth." It does not explicitly pertain to any religion, belief, or ideology, but merely the concept of reinventing oneself and to have the ability to live life to the fullest. People strive to become the best they can be, and many hope to be "reborn" in the sense that they may have the chance to relive their life and correct past mistakes. I think this concept, or hope, is universal among people--no matter what religion, ideology, or society you are a part of, this is a hope that unites many--if not all--people. I share in this universal dream that I may, in the future, have found my own key to happiness and finally live my life in the best way I can.
In this piece the egg represents "birth" and the skeleton represents "death," or whatever it is you want to "move on" from.
