The illustration is inspired by the words of Jonas Mekas that „everyone, even without knowing it, somewhere deep in themselves, may be carrying part of the image of paradise in secret.“ (From the movie "As I was moving ahead occasionally I saw brief glimpses of beauty"). Interpreting these words, I decided to revive, resurrect, and transplant the Tree of Paradise that Mecca had planted in New York's Soho Quarter. But he was cut off. The tree here becomes a bridge between Earth and Paradise, a symbol of rebirth, of free creation.
