The fox is believed not to emit a specific recognizable sound (other than a variety of sounds) thus the question mark, what is your sound? We each have a sound but at times, when self-doubts arise, it might become more difficult to hear one s true call. perhaps this is the painting of unanswered questions. On the other hand, questioning things keep our brains in good functioning.
The circles around the question mark symbolize sound waves.
The fox represents one s true sound and the child is in a questioning state from the look of his facial features. Questions like...
What am I? Why am I here? What is my true call? What is my essence? How can I use my skills to benefit the world?
If we listen well enough, all answers lie within us.
This painting uses mixed media (vintage pictures in dye transfer) and transparency techniques so produce the blurry effect.
