Title

The Awakening Conscience

Description

This image depicts a young woman in the arms of her lover, the common perception of a fallen woman in the Victorian times. In this image, the young lady has her conscience awakened as she listens to music that reminds her of her roots. The look on the young girl's face gives the impression that she leaves the arms of her lover to have a better life for herself. The error in her ways is brought to her attention by her conscience.
