I just love this description by Richard Buchanan, which goes to the heart of my own concept fot this piece. Thank you so much Richard!
This image and its title are a great pairing. It’s as if every splotch of rust is a step taken while dancing, and each scratch both a wild homage to the gods, and a boundary the ritual cannot cross. Colors as vibrant as that red, there’s no way this ritual would escape the deities’ notice!
