Arnix create his Garden of Eden; The surface of the glass reflect the viewer and give you the opportunity to self-reflection. Arnix likes to give his version of this classic theme that is also presented in old master paintings.
Until “The Fall” all animals where still in peace with each other and there was no death and destruction. animals are also significant as symbols. They refer to the various human temperaments.
The swallow stands for freedom and feeling detached from everything. The weasel represents inconspicuousness and the ability to see more than others. But also prejudice.
The illustrations are inspired by stick-on shapes from Arnix’s childhood and the printed matters of Hendrik N. Werkman (1882-1945).
