Flight of the Sun
In the picture an episode of balloon flight rises to a cosmic symbol. Egg as the symbol of the origin of the world appears in cosmological myths of many peoples. For example, in the Chinese tradition Earth and Sky coalesced into a single whole like a henâ€™s egg. The origin of the world is compared with an explosion of the egg tossed up. Here, the sky evolved from its upper half, while the earth, from the lower one. And in the sky the Sun that had evolved from yolk began to shine.
This picture has much in common with another picture Sunrise by the Ocean painted by the artist. In that picture, Egg is arranged horizontally, and the idea that â€œtime began to go on,â€ is also compared with explosion of the Egg.
