The world of volcanoes is particularly attractive to this artist. The volcano with its eruptive force has raised its column of lava and burning ash in the sky which will slowly pour over everything that surrounds the volcano itself. The force of the volcano now hovers above it like a threatening whirlwind. Hot flames swirl in the sky and as they cool they will create a blanket of ash that will cancel out every color. The drama can be understood here, but it still has to happen, only a part of the mountain is grayed out by this floury blanket, the rest is still full of fire that descends along the slopes destroying everything you encounter in its path.
High up in the center of the whirlwind of fire, there appears to be a divine eye that scrutinizes how to strike with its huge force.
