An unnatural structure erected to hold back water portrays the symbolic blocking or ‘holding back’ of emotions. The condition of the dam and the details surrounding this imagery can suggest whether the emotions demand release; the clues to what is blocking their expression, or the flood that may ensue should the dam break.
