El Cuento de los Dos Arboles by iNeedChemicalX El Cuento de los Dos Arboles by iNeedChemicalX
A long time ago, in the underground realm, where there are no lies or pain, there lived a Princess who dreamed of the human world. She dreamed of blue skies, soft breeze, and sunshine. One day, eluding her keepers, the Princess escaped. Once outside, the brightness blinded her and erased every trace of the past from her memory. She forgot who she was and where she came from. Her body suffered cold, sickness, and pain. Eventually, she died. However, her father, the King, always knew that the Princess' soul would return, perhaps in another body, in another place, at another time. And he would wait for her, until he drew his last breath, until the world stopped turning...

I get two initial impressions from this picture.

The first one has to do with the color theme. Used widely on the background, and represented in the foreground with more strength and character (as well as simplicity) on the flower arrangements in her head and the makeup in her eyes. It somehow manages to keep both elements linked -which is crucial for the second part- while there is an obvious contrast that maintains them separated. It just tells you: "Pay attention, this is not just a backdrop, all elements are part of the same story"

The second impression is the abstract meaning of this work. I immediately see the reason of the title. I instantly realize the intended metaphor and I find it elegantly portrayed. There is a strong and pleasant contrast between the torso of the model and the tree in many different ways: color, nature, texture, material, expression, yet at the same time they are similar in terms of composition, pose and, again, color (those leaves on her head, etc...)

This is a work of contrasts and similitudes, where the nature of one object merges with that of another by a clever use of composition and color. These are, indeed, two different creatures that manage to be the same kind of thing. They could not be more distant, yet they seem to belong together.

I love Pan's Labyrinth (El Laberinto del Fauno) and that passage in particular is one of my favorite parts of the film. It just sets the movie up so perfectly.

I think the passage fits the photo and that the photo is beautiful. The colors are gorgeous.

I think that the best part of all this work was the description, but I don't think that the photo was the most suitable for this story. And I think that model needed to be in a bit differnt poze. But all together the work gets 8.5 of all 10. ;)
