This work is surprisingly effective in characterizing its subject with a limited set of tools. First, the work's contours do a good job of implying a flowing motion towards the right edge, and the way that the bottom-right area of green is shaped makes it seem like a dress for the figure whose head is defined by the light cracks all converging to a point. Then, that figure reaches back out to the left, casting a spell behind with a long, kinked arm. The work's title gives only one interpretation of the figure's identity and purpose.
