King Sonny James was created from the concept of a young boy emerging into man hood. Excepting those responsibilities of an adult. The lesson King Sonny James must learn comes from the story of Alice in Wonderland. To remember what the door man said, " Keep your head!"

That is why the painting has a floating element to it. King Sonny James must learn to place some emotional restraints onto himself. As to reap the benefits life and to govern as King. The space is symbolic of his new found power of making peace not war.
