Story SHOW HOPE : On this painting you see a group of children who confront themselves with great consciousness towards the spectator. As if they wanne say: "This is us". On the side you see two deers. Metaphors for freedom, pureness and vulnarability. The dark bend on the left side seems to afflict and wipe out. It symbolizes the negative forces that threaten the children. The complete paintings stands for what Lucebert said so well: "everything of value is defenceless".
