The drawer is melting...

During a studio visit, a friend asked me why the drawer is melting out of the fridge? I'm not religious but when I was looking for ways to compose "View from the 8th Floor", I found the mother Mary statue in my basement. I thought the statue illustrated the theme of home or protection. And I decided to put the statue in the fridge. 

The drawer is positioned like her legs, the shelves are her breasts, the light is her head and the void space of the building to the right becomes her arm. And she cradles the baby on her lap...
