Description:
The body of a woman and that of an animal are opposed on the canvas: the woman, portrayed naked from behind, is leaving the left side of the canvas, while represented in the opposite direction, is an owl, of which we can only see part of the body and a wing. The two figures are unified by their obscured faces, representing mystery and a greater knowledge – we do not need to see, to know. In this intuitiveness and nudity, the two subjects belong to the same natural world and are entirely free.
