The painting represents 39 steps in 39 colours and is meant to look like zips or ladders to highlight that we all have ups and downs in our lives with events opening/closing or climbing up/down and leaving a mark. The comical snakes are there because you have to have… snakes with ladders smiling at you. There was an apple too but I painted it out. Too many allegories already going on in this one.
