Chained yet Unchained are we?

One of the many marvelous art work byRod MCRAE, this one named Born Free, is the one that amused and shook me the most. The artist’s view of the art form is about how animals are bought down from their “real” environment by the changing world from “wilderness” to today’s “Natural Reserve Parks” and “Zoos” changing the way they always were meant to be.

That being said, art can always be interpreted or visited parallel or  in different way. For me this one seemed closer to the world that “humans” now live in. We have comfort, seem unchained, seem relaxed and chilled out, but are we really? just another lion in the city living like a dog?
