Dream and reality

10 years ago, I had a dream which I made into a painting.


The situation described by this image is complex. A soldier armed with an automatic rifle, is standing idle as a man with a wooden club is charging toward him. Why does he not open fire, this is a threat to him? Why is the man with the club so daring?


I now found this image in the newspaper.


This photo shows pro-russians storming a governmental building in Luhansk. The situation as well as the actual image has a striking similarity.
