(Material aspects)

Like the halter, the harness indicates some form of control or restraint.

It may be that we are actually being restrained by our own limitations, or that we are being controlled by external circumstances.

To be wearing a harness often takes us back to periods in childhood when we were not allowed the freedom we would have liked. You might also like to consult the entries for bridle, bonds, chains, halter and horse in animals for further information.
