For some people, the body is a real cage, something that divides them from the others, no matter how much they’d like to share their lives with somebody else.
But what they do not know is that the “cage” isn’t real. It’s just their own wrong perception of themselves. There’s no cage. You can be yourself, no matter how you look like.
I’ve been listening too much to Peter Gabriel’s cover of “My Body is a Cage,” and badly wanted to add it to “Dangerous Curves,” but needed something that could convey the concept. Zebras are perfect: their stripes can look as bars of a cage. In this case, I just detailed her hands, muzzle and eyes because I needed her hands to be placed on her body, as if she was trying to cover herself, her eye for the sad gaze and her muzzle to make you see a face, after all. I didn’t add any lines for her body because all I wanted to show were the stripes, the cage created by herself.
