I have been wondering about the meaning of the written words as well . Do they refer to the diversity of languages? To the labyrinth of languages? Can we find our way around the world, or are we lost in the labyrinth?
I think some people are lost in time and space, and need to find their own way, not the outside world, but to find the world in himself, whom were not aware.
Maja, I find this drawing to be really impressive. How much time did it take you to complete?Also, what do the written words within the circular maze mean? I find the integration between art and writing to be really interesting, and I think you have done a beautiful job here!
Thank you Jacob. It took me 2, 3 days of constant drawing. It's a poem in my native language, Serbian, and refers to people from the past and from the present, the people who were or are still among us. It reminded me on a maze. Poem review in Serbian:
и постоје сећања на реке
друге су текле
готово да су исте
сунце је најкрупнија риба
и у једној и у другој
постоје сећања на неке људе
први су ту
други су били ту
готово да им истоветно
Maja, what is the name of the poet? Do you know if he or she has been translated into English?I like the idea of a drawing with a poem in it, or a poem inside a drawing. The drawing is not just an illustration of the poem, the poem is intertwined with the drawing. It's really cool.
