"Three Thousand Threads of Trouble"
The inspiration comes from a Chinese phrase, which is originally from Buddhism - "三千烦恼丝"/"叁仟煩惱絲" - which meaning "three thousand threads of trouble", refering to hair. That's why monks cut off their hair, because they need to seperate themselves from the troubles they have in the human society (excuse me if there's any mistake but that's how I got it anyway.)

I thought, where does trouble come from? It actually doesn't come from anywhere else other than our own mind. If we could cut it off, it could just be gone - but it's ourselves who decide to keep them in, we made a nest for them because there's something related to the trouble that we simply can't give up.

Just like her hair, it's keeping all the trouble, they scream at her head all the time, but she just can't give up her hair - even though it troubled her so much that her hair have all turned white.

No pain no gain I guess. :) Oh and baby birds are SO CREEPY that I thought they are perfect acting as "trouble" :P and baby themselves too....XD what's more troublesome than a baby? seriously? XD

Anyway, hope you enjoy the painting! :)
