I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings.. by 

(mixed media on card)
For this collage,featuring Waterhouse’s famous painting of Ophelia from Shakespeare’s"Hamlet" losing her mind. I decided show her as a caged bird because of her circumstances.To get my metaphor across, I used a cut-out of a print that looks like a golden Bird Cage. She(Ophelia) has wings herself but is unable to use them & no one to unlock her cage(i.e;her life) for her.
