Illusion, temptation, ambition, willpower, enlightenment.
With an obsession for the material, a charming yet cunning devil, Deception, has bound himself to his treasure chest. Those who have submitted to his influence are worn around his waist for the purpose of feeding his smugness and to remind others of his power. Though Deception wears an expression of self-contentment, his garish hat portrays the expression of despair. With a love for instilling fear in order to maintain authority, Deception laughs mockingly, believing that a marionette, Flee, is his to play with forever. However, Flee refuses to dance to the tune control any longer, and has another plan in motion. Preparing to cut the strings that bind him, Flee is moments from breaking free from the bonds of limitation.
The devil is a metaphor of our own behaviors and attachments. You possess your own inner-power to live a life that is healthy and productive. Look within, be aware of your impulses, and learn how to control them. By facing your fears, you’ll find freedom and the realization that you have the power to choose and to carve your own pathway, with no strings attached.
Unhealthy addictions and obsessions. Emotional dependancy. Being misunderstood.
