Cindy and I both felt that this was quite an innocent, if a little odd, image at first but the more you look the wierder it gets. The hand for example, one is a paper cut out the other some kind of inflatable, some of the fruit and veg is flat some 3D and after a while it makes you feel uncomfortable. The whole thing is confined within a box (not that clear on the photo) but the intense dark behind the figure gives it a real claustrophobic feel and it really does get stranger. You have to be impressed by someone who can elicit all those feelings with an image.
