Devotional by MSpaintdog Devotional by MSpaintdog
This is merely symbolic, not really very 'surreal'.

Funny, this really did start as a collection of color fades and some subconscious imagery. Next thing I know, it's being compared to " The Allegory of the Cave", for cryin' out loud! Guess I hit a nerve.

He's either working on a fart to ignite or he's got a subterranean rectum and already ignited it.

Really? I suppose,somewhat.Only now,when the philosopher returns to the cave,ready to reveal the truth,....his people are gone,and all that remains is the fire.Rather dark....I like it.

Huh. The way I saw it was the people all left, tired of the truth that is the fire, and eventually relinquishes the prisoners...
Except one of the "puppeteers" remain and stare at the truth.
Perhaps I'm overanalyzing with my overactive imagination

I drew it in the surrealist tradition,draw first,think later, with meanings rolling up around me like marbles on a warped floor as I worked.From among these possibilities you drew a good one.Enjoy.

I was just messing with a color fade, like the over-bright fading to gloomy around a campfire, when I decided this fire looked special, like someone,[or something] would soon begin to dance around it, calling out strange words.....a bit like something from a Lovecraft novel. So that's what I drew.
