Hair dyed in a stark turquoise, her artificial appearance and the world she lives in convey an individual enveloped in darkness. However, she holds a hand to her face expressing the desire to remain mysterious and hint at what lies within. The inner landscape reveals a greater reality. There is nothing artificial, only natural light. A crescent phase of the moon (which symbolizes change) appears above the horizon and is reflected upon the still water, a sign that the outer darkness will soon vanish.
