“Caged Freedom”

 

“Caged Freedom” can be seen as an anti-war poster, or a comment about homeland security, but the ethereal image of the bird also suggests a yearning for freedom within us; we are trapped by the same web of negativity that world leaders weave which prevent us from unfettered flight. If we can realize this, we can begin to find a way out of our prison.
