I was going through some old pictures and I came across these.
I've always been fascinated with containers and containment- especially in natural forms.
The coconuts contain something which can't be seen but which requires the protection of the spikes. There must be something precious at the core.
The outside of the pods give a much clearer suggestion of what is inside, but even still, you can't be sure exactly.
And, after that, how does what's contained inside get outside? And then, what is left behind?
