Anthropomorphism: dandelion seeds with human bodies

Pen and ink sketch: September 2015

A dandelion seed head in which the seeds have anthropomorphic human form.
The image is disturbingly ambiguous. Is the fact that one of the seeds is drifting away from the seed head a sign of freedom or simply a sign of fate? And what can be read into the fact that the humans in the anthropomorphic seeds have no heads?
Anthropomorphism is a common theme in my work.
