Patterns shaped as crows that look in one direction represent society with its stereotypes. There always exists a lone individual who attempts to fight society. This fight is hard to win, because the forces are uneven. Society has always imposed its man-made laws and rules which are unacceptable for some individuals, while the masses obey these rulings. Exceptional individuals find it impossible to follow at times senseless and absurd rules that have been artificially and falsely created based on the society’s foundations. An individual person always tries to find a way out of this trap, being forced to choose a difficult path. It is extremely hard to resist, but this is the price one has to pay for freedom. Freedom is owned only by those willing to live against the rules, to challenge society.
