    The uniforms of the soldiers…have constituted a sort of “opera fashion” along men´s history..destined to produce fear on the others…and it islike that in all cultures…except in the tribes of the Amazon or profound forests. Now… they have lost even the “grandeur” changing their outfit for a lethal bio-man soldier aspcect.. whose weapons and targgetting devices are mean to kill efficiently.. destroy efficiently.. mimmicking their uniforms with the surroundings…and in that way… turned into desert sand…a leavy forest….white snow…nothing of fantasy…art… just…tricking… masking intentions.

    Your soldier remembers me a lot to the “Magicien” of the Marseilles Tarot Card…not in the outfit… but in the feeling the sense of creating a world of new possibilities…Changing a weapon for lollipop and using it as the "Magicien"´s magic band
    All the “meaning” symbols. are around his body…so the world he can create is not just an intellectual one but a sensorial…feeling…and emotional..and intuitive one…near the true self of flesh..tender and harmonious.
    Her face is much of “The Fool”….masking him with a sort of innocence…and joy.. a houmoresque attitude for being able to get along hard times. It gives confidence..and equal human beings.. not making clones out them.
    An the last… very puzzling and discreete.. but truly meaning..
    The different objects hanging before him. Key… penduluum…little cross stand for reason..for knowledge… for spirituality ..for the highest achievements of humankind.(I have not discerned what is the fourth one…ist hat an spider..? Weaving connectio s…and there is another one…may be you can tell me..or I will take a closer view…)

    Have you let your daughter think and talk about this piece of art?.If you have not…just give her time and she will tell you many…many interesting things.
    Ah..I do not forget the little red star.Left handed…supposedely open to acti from the Anima side of the brain…reception…intuition…spirituality…but directed by the Sun….perfect combination of Reception-Action.
    You have drawn…the “perfect mutation”..the true….“Universal Soldier”.
    Rosa (thanks . you have given me a great moment….I wonder why no one has told anything about this yet..)
