What's missing from Diva ... if anything?

It seems that something is missing from Diva but I'm not quite sure what. Could it be that something around the edges/the frame is needed? Some other colour? Is the third pane from the top (web of intention) too clear? Is the missing top pane (Moon flowers) too empty? Or is Diva happy just as she is without any extra adornment?
My other lamps are more elaborate and colourful. Diva, on the other hand, has taken MUCH longer to make than any other lamp I've ever made ... yet she is by far the most simple and basic in appearance. Whilst the other lamps also have deep symbolism to them, Diva's whole symbolic process felt fathoms deeper, going beyond even what I recorded on this blog. The time that she took was the time that I needed to go through whatever I had to go through in order to get her to where she is now. It could not have happened sooner and it could not have happened differently. Perhaps her adornment is in her symbolism and her process. Diva ... the humble, unassuming one who enters a room full of well-dressed, well-rehearsed, well-connected, wealthy people and works miracles.

The simple web of intention. The piece of paper I put there for manifestation says:
Clarity of thoughts, feelings, intentions and actions.
Therefore, be ye lamps unto yourselves, be a refuge to yourselves. Hold fast to Truth as a lamp; hold fast to the Truth as a refuge. Look not for a refuge in anyone beside yourselves. And those, who shall be a lamp unto themselves, shall betake themselves to no external refuge, but holding fast to the Truth as their lamp, and holding fast to the Truth as their refuge, they shall reach the topmost height (Buddha)
