How would YOU interpret this picture?!
This is a photo that i clicked for my school magazine 4 years back for an article titled “Beautiful Stain”. The school editors made “some” changes in this illustration by completely erasing off the blade because they thought it was too offensive.
But, a piece of art IS a piece of art.! And well, it perfectly went with the “offensive” article too.
So, how do you interpret this picture? Many people studied this picture with great enthusiasm and gave me the following interpretations :
1. LOVE CAN BE PAINFUL. ” there is blood on the stem.so this figure doesn’t show that any harm has been done to the rose.. in fact whomsoever held this rose cut himself.. and the fallen petal represents the what has lost in his life… his love… himself/herself.. ”
2. “it is an ideal picture which shows us how humans are… selfish and not caring about others.. think ourselves to be the most advances of all the species but that doesn’t give us the right to treat others any different.. taking the rose for an example.. a blade has been used to cut the plant… so it has to be the a human.. and how we take plants not to be living and cutting it ruthlessly for our joy. ”
what do you think so far? Any different interpretations or thoughts about this?
Here’s one more…
” Let the blade be one person and the rose another. Rose – believed to be one of the most beautiful things. But it has it’s “thorns” too. But a person very close to Rose tried to remove those “thorns” – the faults, the bad and the hurtful things from the person’s soul. Rose surely was hurt in the process but doesn’t understand the good in it now. The blade took the risk and made sure that Rose doesn’t hurt anyone. He was ready to take the blame and risk their relationship because it might help Rose in future.”
it’s fascinating how people interpret pictures in ways related to their life. that’s the truth of life. everyone relates things according to their experiences. fair enough.
