Beeing A Tiger
15 X 30 Inches
The spirit of hunting penetrates throughout the painting. It is the theme well familiar from the paintings of different epoch. But this time it is an unusual hunting hunting of the small bees for a mighty tiger. Despite of their incomparable sizes, it is obvious that the tiger and the bee resemble each other, due to their similar striped patterns. There is a deeper meaning of that similarity: The bees unified by the instinct, become an unstoppable force, capable of chasing a big predator. The symbolism of the painting is connected with the dramatic character of the human life – the constant struggle of the person's will and purposefulness against a "plenty of tiresome cares", surrounding him.
