You know, one more thing: it's kind of interesting that the birds are coming from her chest because most people interpret the soul in being linked with the heart. It's probably where I got the interpretation from.
Woah! It's so cool seeing it up there in your description. My brain has been pretty inactive lately (summer break) so it's good that I was able to come up with some good analysis at least. (It's weird, I'm actually glad to be back at school learning)
uhm, well, great great motive, but the black lines at the edges of the face and the head are disturbing me. further, the birds, in my opinion, theyre too much in the image, i'd say that the face itself is enough
