Acrylic paint on rough canvas 66/104 cm – 26″/41″ © Moontain 2011

An Universal story of beings pushing back their limits …
To reach a higher & deeper understanding of Life *
Here is my interpretation ( and i am curious to read YOURS in the comments ) …
When i finished this painting, i had no idea what it was about. So i paid attention to it and observed its details. I’ve noticed this big head had a primitive taste, even if kinda severe, maybe a cousin of the Easter Island characters. Then i saw all the birds composing it as well as this deep blue, like a sea. I felt i was getting closer to its meaning.
So i’ve followed the signs, and came to understand ( and discover ) it was echoing a ritual on Rapa Nui, where one was supposed get to get to another island to climb the cliff and collect the first egg of the season from a local bird and then swim back to the clifftop of the village.
Talk about a metaphorical trial to push back your limits to reach some sacred status ! So i knew that i had both the name and the meaning of the painting ( i invite you to read about this legend and discover others as well )
Now, your turn
