18. THE BABY DANCER:
Please scroll down for description and statement
The girl, wearing a mauve skirt and a green top, dances on a grassy hill with her child, who is also dressed in green. The whole scene is bathed in a hot, hazy summer light. Suspended in the air above the little girl is a white lotus.
A time comes when we can no longer go it alone. We need expert help. She had found her way to the foothills, but try as she might, she could see no way into the mountains. Now, however, a path has opened up for her: the Lotus Path. She does not know where exactly it ends, but she does know it goes up, into the mountains.
In a moment she will put down the child and start planning supper. Then she will pack. Nothing so special, after all. [SOLD]
