Uncertainty of the red thread - Cholo

In this work, the author captures the feeling of uncertainty produced by this legend of the red thread (coiled in the figure), which is timeless (represented in the detail of the broken hourglass) and at any moment the person can reach the other end of the thread.

We see the figure in the painting preening herself to be ready for the moment of that possible encounter, which is not seen coming (that is why the figure has no eyes). On the other hand, we observe the detail of the red thread coming out of the window and heading towards the infinity of space, which implies that the person at the other end could be anywhere, far or near.

In the mirror, we see that the figure has an eye behind her head, that represents the feeling of being on guard, ready for this expected
represents the sensation of being on guard, ready for this awaited encounter, but it is not known when it will be.
