I am actually focusing on the central image which is the man and animal who are painted with dark colors. I am not totally sure why the artist used dark central colors then switched to the bright outline colors. I think the reason why the artist chose these colors is because he might have been feeling depressed. He might have been trying to express his mental state at the time.

The reason why I think it represents this is because of the man in the painting might be torturing the being or animal in the background. It looks as the being or animal was hung up by its arms, and it was maybe skinned to be eaten by the man. I am not totally sure what the umbrella represents, but this following explanation might explain why it was used in the painting.

This piece of art makes me think of bad things that have happened to me and that I do not want to experience
