The protagonist of this artwork seems to be caught in a snapshot that shows her absorbed in what she’s doing: She’s bowing to catch something, her legs spread and the towel twisted around her middle. The artist seems to be able to represent his subjects with a photographer-like ability, capable to catch all the shades of the subject’s soul. The model is following her inner stream of life and the artist reveals her intentions with his inner eye.
