In the artist’s own words: “People say that this land is linked to Noah, as legend relates that, having seen this flat highland, he then threw out the Ark’s anchor and told everyone on board to disembark. They said that the village took its name from the color of the mountain, located across, during the sunrise. This girl is the top of the water like Noah’s Ark, and the color of her hairs is like a sunrise. The photograph is like a symbol of the legend.”
