almost everyone has to go through. This artwork gives a bit of a reality check to the viewers and reminds them of how actual life is and it not always good but when we look at the artwork from an ascending order it is all dark with the base of the ladder along with four dark walls and as we gradually come to the top of the artwork where it finishes, there is light which shows the beacon of hope and happiness. Light is a form of liveliness and happiness in a person's life, so basically what the painting describes is a life of a hardworking person where they will face endless hardships in life and will have to go through troubles( which are the curves in the ladder) but when a person successfully goes through these hardships of life there is success and hope of life and happiness waiting for them. The artist has also put some light in the middle of the artwork where there are twists and turns in the ladder depicting that there are not always moments of sadness and dullness, there are moments in life where a person gets happy and enjoys but all of this is a test which a person goes through in life and without this success is very difficult.
