When I first saw this set, the verses in 1 Timothy 1:16-17 came to mind and heart.  

Christ Came to Save the Sinners...

"But I received mercy for this reason, that in me, as the foremost, Jesus Christ might display his perfect patience as an example to those who were to believe in him for eternal life.  To the King of the ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever."

My interpretation:  

While it doesn't directly speak of slavery or being shackled, it speaks of the utmost of patience to those who are troubled; the sinners and those who who struggle to find their way.  He is ever so patient, allowing us time (in our own time) to discover The Way and The Light..So while our hearts and minds feel enslaved or trapped, we have time to find our way...Be patient...  And when it is time, our path will be clear...and we will be welcomed into His kingdom with open arms.  

What are your thoughts?
To conclude my study, I designed this page by watercoloring the background in  YELLOW (purification/fire/light) and PURPLE (kingship, royalty).  After that, I added hints of pinks (representing right relationship) and white (purity and righteousness).  Next, I colored the castle with hints of BLUE (to represent the Holy Spirit and Authority) and the crown was colored in Golden yellows and oranges (Glory, divinity, Kingship) If you're interested in learning more about the symbolic meanings of color as they relate to the Bible, there is a great read on  Biblical Meanings of Colors
After stamping my sentiment over my watercolored background, I applied the castle and the crown and then splattered some white.  This white "fleck/splatter" represents the turbulent journey back and forth always catching pieces of His righteousness in the journey to find our way.
