I wanted to express the relationship between a child and nature, where they are still growing, discovering, evolving and developing their personality and characteristics. She is still so young and innocent, and afraid of the big world, like that of a rabbit. There is much to learn, see and experience. She still needs the guidance and nurturing of her parents, but she will grow big, and so will her dreams. As she grows, she will grow into a strong, independent woman and her characteristics that run parallel with nature will change. Perhaps she will be that of the strong and fierce elephant that can barrel through anything to achieve her goals. Or maybe she soars like the eagle with laser focus and a beauty and grace like no other. Only she can determine her path. Only she can uniquely harness her powers.
