Growing Up by tiffanytong Growing Up by tiffanytong
Pic Meaning: The hourglass represents time. As the time goes, one will leave childhood. He/She has to deal with adult life, which is represented by the objects in the bottom part of the hour glass. The objects in the upper part of the hour glass represent childhood. The girl in the pic wants to pull her teddy bear with her, as she misses her carefree childhood. However this is impossible as the teddy bear is stuck in the bottleneck of the hourglass. Letting go is a big part of growing up.

I saw this on your thumbshare page.

This image struck interest in me immediately. I had to come to this page and view it.

I'm very impressed at the simplicity and thoughts behind this piece of art. I'm in love with it.
I feel like this is the type of art that can be related to many many people as it pertains to growing up as a subject. This is something I'd love to do sometime.

Thank you for sharing this wonderful piece, ^_^_^_^_^
