The Searching for Harmony in duality The environment was inspired by places which I have been to. Especially the nature of northern Bohemia. For instance, the giant rock was inspired by the little German spa resort of Oybin, not far from the border with the Czech Republic; the marshland around the mill has its source in the Jizerské Mountains in the north of Bohemia; the mill vanes were inspired by bats, etc... As for the story and idea of the scene, I was influenced by biblical themes and classical art. The idea of the scene should be in contrast and clash of two classical counterparts. Light and darkness. "As same as abounded lighthouse facing the sea and waiting for its keeper, in the far dark land is the old mill, which did not move its big paddles for a very long time. For years, it did not grind a stalk of grass, from land, where life has disappeared. The old expectant is waiting on the high hill. In addition, villagers from not distance village are waiting for the return. Return of the light." Working on it took in total fewer than two months of standard work (including "normal" life and work :-)
