The fiery blossom flaming like a torch guides us into the depths of timeâ€”straight to the fires of pre-historical people. Ritual dancing around the fire should have involved the favour of powerful spirits to ensure good luck in hunting and war. We see the hands of dancers rising upwards like flames, appealing to cosmic forces for help or protection. The magic fiery flower is transforming into a violent red dance. Circular movement symbolizes the motion of constellations around of the sun. This image has something in common with â€œDance,â€ a famous picture of French artist Henri Matisse, representing a circular dance of red nudes.
