by Philip Hofmänner
A beautiful work, which at first glance refers to the well-known work of Joseph Tomanek Fire Dance, and even resembles the even more famous work of Matisse – Dance. It presents, as the title tells us, Walpurgis Night, that is, the night of the dead, which in Europe is associated primarily with the witches’ Sabbath. Dancing over fire has become a frequently repeated, and thus a very interesting motif referring to Germanic culture, used until today by artists of all kinds.
