The egg is a symbol of contained life developing and growing until the shell breaks to release the new creature, from confined to open space. In this painting, the curled figure has no protective or restrictive shell, but seems to imagine one; the viewer sees that she is in fact free to stretch her limbs, ironically though only to the limits of the definitive corner.
A very interesting concept and very well executed.
