Painted throughout its breadth with sunset or sunrise colors. A figure cut in paper and watercolors moves across it, back and forth, as if protectingsomeone or something. Paint trickles on the back wall simulate a curtain, that alludes as well to the need to hide or to cover. Together, all thesepainting parts spawn a backdrop of a panoramic landscape with an awkward figure and an obscure, yet ritualistic, repetitious occurrence.
