This picture is playing around with the idea that something coherent can be  created out of an apparently chaotic arrangement of objects. In a very confined space  colours and tones can be controlled so that it is possible to create balance and  harmony. From the clutter that can be found in everyday environments  beauty can be  created. The use of toys to explore this can animate and enliven the image, giving a  feeling that is both joyful and slightly disturbing.
