Wow! The dull complementary color background then the surprise pink face half seen. Brilliant!

A strange appearance indeed. Is the pink paint under the brown or on top, ie did it appear when scraping off the brown to reveal layers underneath or is it applied last?

Looks like he has some stick legs coming out in the bottom green area, so human/canine other type of creature feel is what I get...nice

Hey fellas, thank you kindly! I love it when imaginations are in action. The pink is painted over the brown. The stick legs are meant to look like red stripes on his sweater!...😂😂 Hairy Wolf? Quite likely! 😜

In a cave
unexplored, undiscovered, unlittered
near yet far
we found this...

at first, we were unsure,
unsure if it was real
so life like
so unreal...

the cave walls were not these colors
not red, nor green, not ochre.
Pink? not a trace of the pink,
no where else was there pink.

what were the ancients trying to tell us?
was this an animal
or a humanoid?
an alien? a spirit? a God?

Yet here before us it is revealed,
no explanation
not a word does it speak
yet it calls to us...

Is this thing in pain
fear terror joyous laughing?
it seems wise, silent and watching
perhaps it is one of many...

the cave is now being
explored examined analysed
the peace of eons is no more
someday the tourist the trash will arrive...

we are sorry to have found you
to have disturbed your resting
sleep well my friend
sleep well....

From back here in the peanut gallery I can see over the heads in the front row as the spotlight hits Mandy"s face and he overwhelms with 'Over The Rainbow'.

Now I can't get it out of my head . . . Thanks a lot, Hairy!

For me, this piece looks like a dark, warning or beguiling piece. What may have first appeared innocent has revealed itself as a demon. Reminds me of some works I have seen over the centuries in art history class displaying hell or consequences of temptation, or damnation scenes. Very moody... That pink highlight is effective . A sweet but then becoming a sickly highlight that reveals something not so good. Lol Makes a viewer squirm!
I hope you wont take offence to that description.

Sketcher, your interpretation is admirable. Deep insight. Great.
