A woman admiring her husband, showing that he is the one in charge. "As long as I live, I will not be ruled by a woman." (Sophocles 24).
A man of power, aka Creon. "I have no hope to give. The death sentence stands." (Sophocles 42).
Creon has the power himself to decide another persons fate. "We wash our hands of this girl. But either way, Her permit to reside above the earth is canceled." (Sophocles 40).
Creon having power over the whole city, Creon stated, "You're dismissed. Take yourself where you please; You're a free man, no serious charge against you." (Sophocles 20).

This painting is bringing out the dream of women being envious of men. "That they envy boys for possessing one and that, in the main for this reason they develop a wish to be a man." (Freud 394).
When a women looks at a man to Freud it's them wanted to be like them. "That they envy boys for possessing one and that, in the main for this reason they develop a wish to be a man." (Freud 394).
