 Hello all,
I made this image for use here at Istock and it is quite outside the box of what I normally shoot so I had a hard time keywording it.  The image is to support the phrase “can of worms”. The phrase is used to define a problem, or more specifically an unforeseen or suspected but hidden problem. Any help with appropriate conceptual keywords would be greatly appreciated as the image is not getting the views I had hoped and I feel it may be my keywords or lack of.

Can of worms is in the CV. Here's a bit of verbalising, if anything useful crops up feel free to use it.

A can of worms represents a knotty problem, often unexpected or presented suddenly (as in 'a whole new can of worms'). It represents an unexplored area of a process or topic, which has lots of worm-like slimy twists and difficulties all of its own. The can suggests that the problem is somehow hidden or contained, giving rise to 'Let's not open that can of worms'.

Your can of worms, of course, is already opened.
