Cassandra was the most beautiful of the daughters of the Trojan king and queen. Cassandra was blessed with a gift of prophecy, however she went into a trance when receiving foreknowledge of prophecy. She was perceived to be insane. This piece speaks of society forsaking individuality over assimilation. Slashing the growth process of creativity and mental evolvement.

Symbolism: Wisteria intertwined on white birch tells this story. White birch symbolizes the pure rebirth. Wisteria symbolizes a spiral unfolding of consciousness with the expansion of the mind, beauty and love.
