The highlighted point of interest is «mis en abyme» at the end of a funnel of foliage and a zigzag of fences and wall. We have to cross no less than 3 levels of obstacles to finally realize that we can’t violate the privacy of this house. Along the same axis, the incongruous open sardine can on top of the frontmost pillar is in plain view, facing us. It sends us a jarring warning: like this can, we are a bit out of place here and any additional effort to breach the privacy of this secluded house would be inappropriate.
