This image plays further with the idea that we all have open, exposed spaces in our lives and also closed, sheltered ones. It could be home vs work. Or solitude vs relationship. It also symbolizes the new place I had reached in my life at the time – where after much mindful contemplation (represented by the open sided temple) and raw exposure to my own suffering, I found a place of emotional and physical shelter in my new relationship with my wife (as represented by the closed, intimate hut).
