For the creative aspect of this project, I chose to create four pieces of artwork detailing Lady Macbeth’s journey. There is symbolism in the colors chosen. They show Lady Macbeth’s rise and descent in power, resulting in her death.
For the first drawing, it’s a simple crown. The crown represents the rise in Lady Macbeth’s power. She receives a crown after she is queen, but in some parts it’s red. This is because it currently shows how much blood is on her hands from participating in the killing of Duncan. For the second drawing, it’s the same crown but a little damaged. The damage to the crown shows that Lady Macbeth’s guiltiness is getting to her and her sanity is slowing coming to a crumble. More red color is shown, representing the blood on growing on her hands. As you look at the third crown, it has finally reached its crumbling point. The crown is now in shambles, pieces piled upon each other. More of the crown is colored in red. More blood is growing on her hands as the book goes on, from killing to killing. At this point Lady’s sanity has completely dissembled and ruined. By the end, the crown has turned to blood-covered dust because of the blood she put on her own hands by killing herself.
