I like how you present this work - its a good idea, might just try it out myself, to make a sketch at the moment u have an idea and then work from there. Your final result is fascinating. bit dark at places, is the "fat" there or is it a belt?
OK, it doesn't mean anything in particular. I knew that part of the frame was going to be very dark, so I placed the ribbon over my leg where a garter would go. Gives the image a frame of reference. And I thought it was pretty.
