Sample text

They are framed above by a transparent snake, a symbol of spiritual power. Often P. B. was persecuted in his dreams by a strange 'old woman', an unrecognisable, terrifying enemy. This is the dark side of nature, inertia and death, from which the creative artist has to wrestle free again and again. The figure who sees this vision is colourless - his consciousness is drained of life, and the whole play of colours has gone into the reality of his unconscious, where a frog rises from below, an old symbol of resurrection.

The animal is a sort of Behemoth, the dark female side of God, waiting to be liberated from its prison in the depths of the earth. Oil, ca. 1958 Der paracelsische , der feurige Schopfergeist der N atur im Bergesinneren, eine Urmacht, die ausbrechend unsere Welt vernichten konnte. Flammen schlagen aus dem Berg, und Steine rollen krachend herab. Rechts unten ein kleines Auto und ein fliichtender Mensch.

Unbesieglich in seinem harten Panzer, schreitet er mit schweren Schritten nach links.
