Summary of symbols Strength: femininity, softness, finesse, intelligence, strength.
Lion is tamed by the Force, which holds it by the teeth. The Force shows us that by subtly using the force of the Lion, which is basically destructive and devouring, we obtain a precious instrument of evolution when it is tamed and controlled.
The image of a committed woman in an effortless fight with the Lion recalls the myth of Cyrene, nymph kidnapped by Apollo and transported to Libya. She fights alone the Lion and wins.
The fact that the Force holds the teeth of the Lion in its hands refers to Samson holding the teeth of a beast.
The red coat of Strength represents vitality and strength.
Blue symbolizes intelligence and spirit.
