The innocent face belies the tragic fact of the immense wealth accumulated by so few while countless millions were starving. On a lighter note I wonder what is the significance of the feather or leaf that she's holding?

She is holding a rose :) I think it means nothing, just pretty flower :)

Ah yes, so it is! I didn't have my glasses on & the flower part looked like it was a part of her ribbon.

I guessed the pictures was a bit confusing in that part :)
