When "Believe" was unveiled to the public, it was almost universally criticized for it's controversial subject matter. It wasn't until years later that the painting received the recognition it deserved. When you look past the surface elements it is apparent that Ramirez is not actually hinting at the existence of Big Foot or aliens. Rather, that we should be willing to allow for the possibility of the supernatural. Society has labeled so many things in our world as myths or fiction that we have begun to think that they are even outside the range of possibility. "Believe" reminds us that ideas, no matter how improbable, are reality. They are part of a process that leads to thought, study, and debate. They exist through the exchange of stories and, if nothing else, in commerce. As long as someone out there believes in the existence of possibilities, anything is possible.
