Shown first is the painting, "..........," where Lucy embraces a headless doll clothed in a golden robe. The dolls are presumed to signify death or even the dead, and could either mean Lucy is embracing her oncoming death or those she killed.Take a closer look at the image and you'll notice the peculiar position in which Lucy's fingers are drawn, where her middle and ring finger are held together while her pointer finger and pinky spread out to form a W.

Most representative of this is the presence of a single black bird, a crow, who is a reminder that everything that begins must also end.

Appearing next is a combination of two paintings: above is Adam and Eve & below The Three Ages of Woman. In the sequence, Lucy is held by a female doll with horns atop it's head. It can only be assumed that the doll is Lucy's mother, or better rephrased, Kaede's mother. Although a human, Kaede's mother was the beginning of the Diclonius virus; having given birth to the Queen Diclonius.It can further be concluded to in fact be Kaede's mother by the peculiar blemish in what appears to be a gaping hole on the doll's abdomen; probably an underlying reference to a manga-only plot.In "The Three Ages of Woman", it can be deciphered which woman is tied to either Kaede, .....
