Rose from the ground, may it be soil or concrete. The flower is to be treated and nurtured as it grows. Soft light upon the human vs the fall off light on the dead rose pedals creates the ideas of person versus nature or the reincarnation of plant life into human life. This “tub” is a bed for both death and life. The tub’s shape brings the thought of fertility and the womb of the model yet the grave for the roses. They are one in the same.
