First, title was taken from this: "The mind can weave itself warmly in the cocoon of its own thoughts, and dwell a hermit anywhere." ~ James Russell Lowell

Second, the idea came from these pictures i've seen a bunch of times over the past few years, of trees that had been cocooned in spider webs after flooding had driven all sorts of insects into them. If you haven't see them yet you can head over here: [link]

I'd thought about using some of my fake spider webs, but logistically it would have been a nightmare, so i went with my beloved plastic instead.

The color version is awesome, but for some reason the black and white one speaks to me more. Plus it makes what's going on inside the "cocoon" look way more bizarre and awesome.

Model is the wonderful Tatiana.
