The Bear with its rising hands pushed me to paint a scene of life that we often see on our ancient tombs.

The ancient EGYPTIANS used to paint these kind of painting because they believed in resurrection. So they painted what they saw during their life...the life in the NILE region with it's animals, birds, fishes etc. All this will come back to life with them in their eternal life.
