A picture can be a visual depiction of a person or object, an icon in itself a sacred object or a representation of spiritual significance. The condition of the picture may be important, as may also the colours. A torn picture suggests that what is depicted has been damaged. The subject matter may give us suggestions as to what we should be ?looking at? in our lives more objectively. A picture in a dream is usually an illustration of something that is important to us at that time. If the picture is framed we may assume there is a degree of protection. The interpretation will depend on whether the picture is painted, a print of another picture, or perhaps a photograph.
