Description: It’s been a long time since I drew the picture, so it would be hard to specify on what I was focusing during the process. What I can talk about are my current impression and potential symbolism. This image could have also been a premonition of some events happening years later, but I think I am going to leave it out for now. On the picture, a viewer can see a child and a man riding a chariot with a bluebird harnessed to it. The image resembles The Chariot Tarot card, but not only. In my deck (Tarot of the Fool) I replaced a woman of a traditional World card with a bluebird of happiness. The man teaches the child how to harness what is under (while facing and overcoming what is not under) control in life, so the young one would become a teacher one day to restart the cycle.
