A symbolic representation of DIVORCE!!!!!
The anger stands out the most! Note the flailing arms and angry looks with the wide mouths and stabbing eyes, the beads swinging and the hair flying. Red and green backgrounds are opposing colors on the color wheel showing how the parents are TOTAL opposites. Clothes are opposing colors and note how one parent has a zig zag design while the other parent is wearing the opposite, a straight type belt and round beads. Even the light fixture and couches are different for each side indicating the dissimilarity between the parents.
Each parent is sitting on a crucial baby item-a bottle and toy; perhaps squashing the significance of the child. And, oh yes, there IS a child in the pic. Sadly, the child is NOT the first thing one focuses on when looking at this pic. The child is sitting quietly and engaging in an activity alone; however, the eyes are wide-eyed and piercing indicating a sense of ‘what am I to do.’
