Spathe, Scratched Light

Spathe? No, that's not what it really is. I don't want to erase the mystery and atmosphere of this photograph by revealing the subjects. (Perhaps you have a suggestion or inspiration?) I took the picture this afternoon, found this shrunken world while playing with light and elusive reflections. To enter, click on image, lean forward, and disobey gravity.

What is called a sincere work is one that is endowed with enough strength to give reality to an illusion.

-- Max Jacob (1876-1944), Art Poetique

Wow, can't figure out what this image "is" – but that is not a prerequisite for enjoying this terrific abstract composition!

Thanks, Michael. It was fun experimenting with the light and reflections. A revelation: part of the composition is a ladle.
