Beautiful Darkness Symbolism

397 Words2 Pages
Beautiful Darkness presents the emotional, dark story of a small girl who simply wants the best for those who around her. The art within the story is done in a bright watercolor, which is very contrasting to the true nature of the characters represented. Because the bright watercolor is so characteristic of the story, when it is broken we know it is for a good reason. On page 61 of Beautiful Darkness, the two lower panels say a lot without many words. The upper panel shows Aurora, dirt-stained, laying on the ground. She looks displeased, and it is fairly obvious things are not going her way. In the background of the panel, we see a hedgehog (or possibly a porcupine) shuffling away with a berry, with no concern at all for what Aurora is experiencing.
