    Despite the fact that you didn’t find any background information on the artwork, I think you made a great film. I liked that you added your own interpretation of the artwork.

    I agree with what Ikey said. And the beginning of your film kind of frightened me a bit due to the unexpected two seconds of terror music, haha. But I think the way you went about it and ending the film with your observational documentary was a good choice followed by simply moving your camera away from the art work as if this photograph will forever remain a mystery.
