The thing that we avoid the most, can be ourselves. This painting is of a girl who is made out of water, yet she is holding an umbrella. The direction of the water is ambiguous. From her hand, it appears to falling yet from her dress and the bottom of the painting, it appears to be rising upwards. This ambiguity represents how the maybe the reason when we try to avoid ourselves the most, is when we are the most uncertain of ourselves.
