A Sign of Things to Come... This pin represents some foreshadowing in regards to the blood theme. But also, as Lady Macbeth encounters nightly sleepwalks, she feels the need to wash her hands of blood. The blood is a representation of her guilt, as the blood is not truly there. Blood in this particular case is a figment of her imagination that follows her religiously in her sleepwalk travels and as she awakens, she is constantly reminded of her guilty conscience she cannot escape.
