Zolo Palugyay was a very talented artist, who tragically died in young age while hiking in search for inspiration. His love for Slovak nature found its expression in numerous watercoulour and oil paintings, many of them with symbolic or esoteric meanings.
In this late painting, the invasion of industrial society into the archaic Slovak world is represented by juxtaposition of the female figure with a jug (a favourite symbol in Slovak modern art) and twisting factory chimneys. The background is formed by the misty silhouette of the Tatra peaks.
