Take The Hatmaker for instance,
What does it make you think of? How does it make you feel? Can you in some way relate to The Hatmaker?
He has his shop. He has his apron and measuring tape. Glasses hanging from his neck.
He is ready.
But the shop is empty.
He looks to the side. Perhaps to see if there is a customer approaching. Or, perhaps, to ponder his own relevance for a second. His very own existence. If his life as he knows it belongs to another time. Misplaced, or forgotten. Who is he now?
Who am I, now?
Is this what The Girl with a Pearl Earring is wondering about, too?
As she takes a second to pause from the everyday commute, going from somewhere, again, to somewhere else, again.
But she is wearing her pearl earring, so, maybe this day is special.
Maybe, today, she is special.
And maybe, the pearl earring is her quiet rebellion.
