Follow us: It is a stormy day. There are four horses on two sides of a little creek. It seems the horses in the foreground can’t decide whether they want to cross the water. One of the horses opposite them, already on the other side of the creek, is turned towards them as if to say, ‘Join us, we’re going to the ruin. The walls will protect us against the storm.’ National Awards 1st Place, Germany.
