This photo may illustrate the fascinating fragility of the foetus... After a serious accident one may start to consider that life as such is fragile... One may imagine a "protective" eggshell around the child... Plaster is connected to something broken... Do you think the face belongs to an older child? Thus, the photo is also portraying the vulnerability or affliction of an older child.
This photograph was one of the winning entries in Artslant's showcase No. 6, 2011. It was exhibited at the Fiarte expo in Granada, April 2011.
