“Among the Thorns,” by Veronica Schanoes, is a dark fantasy taking place in seventeenth century Germany, about a young woman who is intent on avenging the brutal murder of her peddler father many years earlier, by a vagabond with a magic fiddle. About our art, we imagined the young woman as a tree. Her hair are bushes with thorns that imprison the vagabond with the magic violin. The hanged man refers to brutal murder.... Our architectures references are the northern cities with Gothic spiers of the churches.
