" Urs si Cal "
Price - 800.000 USD
oils on canvas ~ 36 x 36 inch
"Bear and Horse" is an exact representation of a dream the artist had. In the dream the lonely guy from bottom right side of the painting was going up the mountain. In his path a big vicious bear and a smaller one emerged. A white horse attacked the two bears protecting the people. While the fight was happening several traditional Romanian dancers named "calusari" created a barrier to protect the people through their dance and noise.
The purpose of this dance in real life is exactly the same, to protect the community. One interpretation of the dream is that the bear represents our bad side while the horse is the good side. In order to evolve we must calm ourselves and bring out the best in us. Another interpretation is that the vicious bear is a big obstacle in our lives that we have to overcome, but like always there is divine help out there.
