Awesome concept. For me there is a headdress missing. One made of branches and such.

Fascinating!  What does it mean that she does have not eyes yet?

Wanted to focus on hearing sense: speech, singing. This is why she's covered by books and music partitions :)

It would look even better if she had eyes, but that's just my opinion :D

This photo has reminded me the quote "Books we read as kids make us who we are today." I think books "build" us so this photo is just pure magic for me c:

Curious, yes... 
I definitely like your style combining fantasy-like pictures with what looks to me including strong symbolism. That suggests to me that I might not be able to even dream of all the aspects there were to appreciate e.g. in this particular picture. However, that realisation is a challenge as itself to look at the picture and start thinking the story behind it and actual point(s) you want to get across. 
Of course it could be "just a picture", but I have hard time believing that the pile of books that looks like an unlit bonfire on which she is standing is made of books by accident. Or, papers wrapped around her with text on them... So, knowledge is one issue here. I also doubt her arms are scorched black because it looks cool... 
Instead, it reminds me how some ideologies find certain type of knowledge unwanted or even dangerous and want to destroy it, the beliefs and even people related to them at any cost. But, eventually, knowledge will prevail as do the people having access to it.
Well, that's what I thought anyway...

Your interpretation is very interesting, and you're right, there's no hasard in this picture
I love giving life to symbolisms :)

I'm glad you do. :)

We have a saying here that goes along the lines of "the more you know, the more it hurts". That was first thing that came to mind with this picture, but then I started to reflect the title to what the picture might represent and... you saw what happened... ;(
