Well, yes, I know THAT, and I get the whole cat/sabre-toothed tiger dealio... but the blank wall is the rock, so what does the white rectangle represent? And I assume those are the chains, so... are the chained people on the other side of the rectangle? Or have these two been released from their chains, and thus identified as philosophers, recognizing the true nature of the Forms...

OK, I'm way overthinking. This is just another cute interweb kitteh, right?

Rectangle is a projection canvas and kitty stand closer to the canvas, so it appears much larger on the rock behind ;-)
