I associate barbed wire with pain. Not just the pain of being cut by it, but also the pain of those who are enclosed by it. Obviously there are other uses- such as protecting your propert.
The wire on the drainpipe has a circular pattern which reminded me of the crown of thorns. One made from manufactured materials, one from organic origin. Both associated with pain.
I've used a layer from the Easter image that I uploaded this year, which included a distorted crown, and combined it with the barbed wire. From one crown came life- from the manmade we can still hope.
Four versions and I wonder which works best?
This is the last in this series of images using barbed wire - not exactly a popular series for obvious reasons, but thanks for looking and for comments on the previous barbed wire uploads
