THOTS: Matt's Prison

This is my picture of Matt in prison:

This picture occurs in the novel after the members of the Alacran family discover that Matt is a clone, and so they hand him over to Rosa, the evil housemaid. He is thrown in a barn that was later filled with sawdust. In my picture he is admiring a dove feather. The picture also shows his "kingdom" underneath the sawdust where bugs, food, bones, etc. that he acquired were kept. I attempted to make the Prison look pretty bleak, like Farmer described it:
    • “The days passed with agonizing slowness, followed by nights of misery. He dreamed of the little house, of Celia, of a meadow so intensely green it made him cry when he woke up."
 So, here it is. Hope you like it!

I also had to choose a song to represent this time. I chose the song Still Alive by GladOs and Jonathan Coulton. Listen to it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y6ljFaKRTrI
It should be quite obvious why I chose this song... It says in the title of the song! It perfectly describes Matt at this time, Still Alive, not dead yet, etc. The song also talks about science (the way Matt was created) and although it does not completely follow the story, the story shows things kind of from Matt's point of view. He waits for the day that he can be rescued and, like the song states:
believe me I am still alive
