One of my favourite artists, Magritte's work. I like how all his backgrounds and figures are so realistic, yet what they are doing is impossible.
This reminds me of some that is keeping something inside themselves that it is stopping them from becoming who they truly are. The use of the cage is very effective like it is a metaphor of being held back or trapped.

Magritte saw his drowned mother drug out of river as a child, his mother's dress was up and covering her face, this Rene had a thing for covering faces in ironic ways....did you know that?
