Doctor of the Forest _watercolor
10 X 7 Inches
The artist carefully traces out the texture of an old tree seeking to make the sight opened out before viewers even more realistic. It seems that the woodpecker that extracts wood boring insects from the wood by its stout chiselshaped bill is astonished suddenly finding the human embryo in the depths of the tree. Obviously, the picture has the symbolic meaning: it could be called the stern prosaic side of life in contrast to rosy dreams of a man.
