This image was inspired by my dreams and talks about a scale female figure with a cape and hood like a representation of a mystical figure, such as a nun or a saint. Her black cape may be associated with a religious order, and the golden halo behind her head is often used to symbolize holiness or divinity.

The young scale girl in the black dress holding the silver cross is representative of innocence and her holding the cross may suggest a connection to faith or spirituality.

The fact that the figure with the cape and hood is holding the girl's shoulder could indicate a sense of protection or guidance, suggesting that the figure may be a guardian or mentor figure for the girl.

This image depicts themes of faith, spirituality, and guidance, with a mystical and otherworldly quality, conveyed through the use of the cape, hood, and golden halo.
