Some people say that if you want to become rich in life, you either have to work really hard or you have to rob a bank. But this joke has a deeper meaning for your life: Do you want to be honest but probably stay poor or become a criminal and be rich? These thoughts make “The Thief” a very symbolic session and therefore it also shows the transformation from the model dressed in black as a criminal to the model painted in white as an innocent person.
