Ätterstupet.(in HD)


I went to Sweden (Skåne) to visit some family, and they brought me to a place deep in the forrest, where people, back in the old days, used to go and get rid of their elders by pushing them over a big rock when they could no longer contribute to the community.
This gave me the inspriration for this painting.

Deres alvorlige og "nødvendige" ansigtsudtryk er fantastiske. Det er tydeligt en barsk virkelighed de lever i. Super flot illustration.
