This image came to me in a dream and I made an aquarelle sketch out of it.  Ten years later image was still on my mind, so I made an intaglio plate on copper. Now image is ready to be seen as an aquatint print. At the same time the meaning of this image came clearer, and I was able to give a name to it.
