Oil and tempera wooden panel, by Thommas Linnrose.
Size 152 x 152 cm
In the center of the picture is a large tree with a wide branch that stretches out over the grass field. A young girl has sought refuge on the branch and sits surrounded by the tree's shadow.
The sheep, which can symbolize innocence and purity, graze unchallenged and oblivious to the girl's concerns. Their white fur and calm movements contrast with the girl's worry, emphasizing the divide between the immediacy of nature and the human construction of fear.
The color palette is a mix of soothing tones and darker shades to highlight the girl's emotions. The light is soft, but the shadow under the tree where the girl sits creates drama and complexity in the painting.
The painting explores the theme of man's inner conflicts in the encounter with the simple beauty of nature. The girl's fear represents man's ability to problematize and anticipate potential danger.
