Lithography, 43 x 33 cm. 1999.

 

The portrait of the thin redheaded girl with the swan in this lithography has a strange atmosphere. What relationship is there between this Sophie with the wounded eye, and the swan? This majestic animal symbolizes numerous meanings, as the sun, loneliness, purity, and shyness. Kolby wants to lead the viewer’s thoughts onto the relationship between humans and animals, as the girl shows an act of honour to the animal by imitating it.
