This painting represents life's dangers. Related to human beings in general it has to do with how fragile we are. There are many symbols and anecdotes about where the idea came from and became a meaningful theme. The name is original from the indigenous Chaco in New Mexico, Anasazi’s descendants.
Further, the model is kneeling in a fetal position, portending its next step to free its soul. He knees backward, exposing his back to the bull. We are very connected, to how sensitive and fragile our Life is. One moment we are here, and the other, we may disappear. Here is one step to mortality. Perhaps the excitement to feel dead knocking behind our backs makes us feel alive, at least for a second. Hence on the other side of us exist respect; we are ready to accept our presage. By getting rid of our shoes, we are revering our pureness to enter holly ground. On the other hand, taking into account feedback from people, some have seen the bull horns as a halo. Finally, other comments as evil, and others accept it as a part of Life.
