Riddle associated with this image: La mano de un criminal.
Via the artist: To me, the hand means creativity and touch. It is the means - the tool - with which we turn ideas and actions coming to us from inner and outer worlds, from above and below, into artistic, as well as emotional and practical, expressions.
The one-inside-the-other Moon Gates refer to the mysteries of creation. The 'fish parade' below expresses currents in the world of the unconscious. The stars are the other end of our experience: unreachable, yet profoundly inspiring.
