A Word from Michael: The puppetmaster (a portly dwarf portraying the ego in its smallness and elaborate dress) uses a swan puppet to mesmerize the human spirit, represented by the woman. The tiger, or rather our animal instincts, is also held in check by the puppetmaster. At this moment, the time is not ripe for the spirit to walk away from the illusion that the puppetmaster has created.
