Artwork Description

During a Spanish ferry trip in the summer of 2015, the contemporary Artist is enchanted by an old man sleeping in an armchair. The old man, long-haired gathered like an Indians, sleeping peacefully and imperturbably while the boat sways between the restless waves of the rough sea.
The rest of the crew (a few people: only a clumsy waiter in the foreground and a couple of women screaming in the background) react actively to the sea event. The old man instead closes his eyes at the exit of the port of Ibiza and re-opens them just before reaching the destination, maintaining the same position, apparently uncomfortable, with his heavy head on his hand and his legs crossed.
On the bottom right, the Artist embodied into a bird, observes the scene.
