What does she mean for you? The end of the day? The coming night time? Well, that could be possible…
The first star however has a different existential meaning. The arrival of darkness is being interpreted as the arrival of something more significant than a darkness.
I continue experimenting with new iconography. The heroes of my icons are not only saints in the literal and figurative sense of word, but also anti-saints. Their halos exude a black glow. They are not very friendly, even from the back. They’re messengers from the other side, guardians of darkness.
In case you’re not satisfied with my interpretation, just try to see in them swarthy guys, who went out to get some air at the yard.
It’s hot at night in the South.
