But not mine! (All artwork below is courtesy of Victoria, except for the paper airplane that can’t fly and the paper finger made by Inshira. That was mine 🙂 ).
In the upper left you can see a frog family hopping around. This could be a metaphor for a professor and a graduate student (not sure exactly what that would be, but if you know tell me).
In the upper right, you see a badly constructed paper airplane. This could seen in the design, but also when tested the paper airplane failed to last longer than half a second in the air. There is probably a metaphor for it failing to do the single thing it was created for.
In the lower left, there is a paper finger (Inshira what are these called? Rasengan or something?). There is definitely some metaphor with this finger, but again the metaphors elude me.
Maybe, there is a larger metaphor about metaphors eluding me? Once again, I’m not sure what that would be (Research?).
