Elina's entry to my DNA Day contest - she won!
I think that her concept is very creative, very symbolic. Issen's DNA is a mingling of human and dog, and this shows that very dramatically. It seems to me that Issen is sort of fatally linked to the dogs. He can't escape it, because it's such a deep, biological relationship. My interpretation of Elina's image is that it depicts Issen's inability to escape from his own genetics. And the red at the bottom I'm assuming to be blood. Not in a violent sense, but as the livid color of life.
