The Trophy

Nina Lassila

A beautifully dressed woman is seen from different perspectives and angles. As a sculpture, an object. She is clearly a trophy. A little later the protagonist runs into the image and stops and looks back at us. She yells and runs away along the road and disappears. What or who is the woman running from? And why?
