Cave of illusion

Here is a picture where it shows prisoners as they were captured and are being treated like slaves. We can clearly see that the shadow is being cast from the cat and the table as it creates an illusion to the people. I believe this represent a symbolic meaning where the artist wants the viewer to see the misconception of reality and fiction. As the prisoners have been in the cave all their lives they have no idea what is reality and what is not all they see are mere shadows.
