About the painting

The work is about the common nature we share and how life and conscience are the really important goods.
Τhis work reflects my belief on the usefulness of the opening for some degree of "enlightened animism" (witch should surpass scientifical or religious "truths", as it’s not really a theory of reality but just an "appropriate mindset"- one wich keeps us aware of our responsibility).
