The real title of this piece is "Freedom", but it fits within the theme as well, so I went with it.

Looking around DA, there are lots of pictures about feeling trapped, and while they are certainly beautiful and emotion-striking, I thought that around Easter a freedom theme was more appropriate. I owe the inspiration to a Language teacher at my school who was preaching chapel this Thursday. He spoke about Lazarus being raised from the tomb, and told us to link the tomb with our own emotional or sinful baggage. The message touched the students, so I hope someone else is touched by this picture. God bless, Happy Easter.

"I am the way, the truth, and the light..." "...and the truth will set you free." -John 14:6, John 8:32

Save me and rescue me, for you do what is right. Turn your ear to me, and set me free. -Psalm 71:2

In my distress I prayed to the Lord, and the Lord set me free." -Psalm 118:5

I have swept away your sins like a cloud. I have scattered your offenses like the morning mist. Oh, return to me, for I have paid the price to set you free. -Isaiah 44:22

...I will tear them from your arms, setting my people free like birds from a cage. -Ezekiel 13:20

So if the Son sets you free, you are free indeed. -John 8:36

Only in this way could he set free all who have lived their lives as slaves to the fear of dying. -Hebrews 2:15

Fun stuff =P My only question is how did she get out?

If you look in the grass around the pile of soot, there is a little golden key shaped like a cross. A "mysterious stranger" gave her the key, and when she put it in the lock, the door melted into ash, and the shackles on her feet as well. I wondered if anyone would ask. XDD Thanks.

Ah, it was a very subtle escape then. I wouldn't have noticed til you told me. Unrealistically I would've thought she kicked the door and it exploded or something.
beautiful! that touched me.
