Playing with fire

I chose “The boot and the six apostles? by Paul Gill because it made me giggle a little. I know that the artist did not have this in mind but it’s immediately what I thought of. The placement of the boot and the six apostles is almost identical to the placement of a bride and her bridal party. The boot, being the bride, is the center of attention. The smaller high heeled shoes, being the bridal party, on display next to the boot. I can relate since I have been both a bride and a bride’s maid. Being the bride made me feel very important and loved. Being a bride’s maid made me feel uncomfortable and on display next to the bride. I love that the boot is big and powerful and the high heeled shoes are small and insignificant compared to the boot.
