“This is a very special piece and when I look at it, I am filled with childlike warmth and passion. People have told me they see melancholy and sadness. But it is not sadness, rather an introspective state of trance.
In all honesty, I made this painting several years ago, and I no longer remember what inspired me. It is one of my personal favorites, that has been wrapped in paper for years in storage; It is now time for its debut.” – Arshansky
