Good idea !Year of the snake, here is how I see it :
the snake is sneaky, it infiltrates. I think this print is Dan looking back at this year and saying thanks to everyone it was a breakthrough year, the underdog infiltrated the big league you know....
And that is why I totally disagree with the 2 scheme in the print being separated cause if they are, there is no more message left in this print.
The first plane pics are to show the year that went by, a succesful one so maybe he was really more on the go this year, you know, going back and forth on the plane to attend events maybe, I don't know... and he finishes his art print with what would likely be home sweet home for him, like in the end, looking back at it...
I may very well be wrong, just my interpretation...
You tell me what you think..
Well, I have another interpretation :
The plane is the snake in the sky "kneeling" around in every directions.
The top of the print is represents the fact that there is many planes so much noise in this city.
And the bottom represents nighttime when all is quite. People are sleeping in their houses.
Top : Daylight : Planes for noise
Bottom : Nighttime : house for the quietness
