Suspended Animation by JesusCareaga Suspended Animation by JesusCareaga
Google defines suspended animation as "the temporary cessation of most vital functions without death, as in a dormant seed or a hibernating animal."

I had used this title for an image before but I think it fits this image more. The inspiration for the visuals originally came from the title sequence of the new movie "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" [link] . I have yet to see the movie but I have read the trilogy. I don't know how that video inspired this, but the idea, along with a story that guided the concept, just came to me when I saw it.

The skeleton idea was inspired by my own previous image Valkyrie

Ohh.. and Andy said it just right! The see-through skin is very cool. I also love the idea of needing a heavy chain instead of the usual gossamer thread.
Sigh.. Stunning piece, again. And it is my pleasure, you are very welcome.

What's the meaning of this?

I'm not sure I can pinpoint the meaning of the image but it is my interpretation of the idea of suspended animation. The definition Google gives for suspended animation is that it is "The temporary cessation of most vital functions without death, as in a dormant seed or a hibernating animal."

Superb piece of artwork my friend :clap::clap:
I have seen the original European version of Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and even though it was dubbed in English it was still a damn good movie. I would say that the new movie would be a lot more refined but I still enjoyed the original.
This piece is an interesting take on how you interpret the reading of the book and I can see the inspiration in this piece.
