I hope someone else besides me notices that the gold/wealth/money looks like a cross. Ironic lol. I love how everything symbolizes something else of deeper meaning. If you don't get this amazing piece of art, then you are out of the loop on life. Congrats on the DD. You definitely deserved it.
I saw a struggle between the inner childish desire to learn and upgrade yourself in a discipline of your choosing ( ), and the obligations towards work for the sake of financial security for a family one is supposed to start thinking about forming at a certain age( ). These two things, balanced together during each day, would create (/ maintain?) a sustainable, secure society ( ). And the battle is ongoing every time you are awake ( ), and you have to grasp the meaning for the consequences of leaning to a certain extent to each of the options provided. 100% certain that's not all of it (I read a couple of comments below). But it's expressive.
