About The Artwork:

This black-and-white illustration is called "Tangled Dreams" and features a jellyfish with a cherry on top and flowers intertwined with its tentacles. 

Jellyfish are known for their fluid and graceful movements but can symbolize ambiguity, uncertainty, and vulnerability. The translucent body of the jellyfish represents a lack of substance, making it difficult to grasp or define. In this sense, the jellyfish can represent a situation or emotion that is hard to understand or eludes definition.

On the other hand, flowers have long been associated with beauty, growth, and renewal. They are a symbol of new beginnings and fresh starts. Flowers can also represent the transience of life and the impermanence of all things.

The image of a jellyfish with flowers in its tentacles can also represent the idea of finding beauty and hope in unexpected places. Just as the delicate flowers are held by the jellyfish's long tentacles, we may find moments of grace and beauty in the midst of challenging circumstances.

In general, cherries are often associated with sweetness, abundance, and the fleeting nature of life. In Japanese culture, the cherry blossom represents the transience of life and the beauty of impermanence. The deep red color of a ripe cherry can also symbolize passion, love, and desire
