This acrylic painting depicts a man inquiring about knowledge. He shows excitement and impatience, for he hopes to unearth the secret knowledge hidden within the pages of the book. With a single gesture, the teacher attempts to explain, while urging the student to be calm. The woman beside the teacher appears disinterested and is taken by the dove's beauty instead. In the background an old man draped in yellow represents society's neglect of wisdom. Fortunately, the younger generation, by heeding the advice of their elders, can carry on the legacy of that wisdom to the future. The old man glances at the exchange between teacher and student with anticipation, hope and intrigue. An eagle floats into the barn to warn of uncertainty and danger. We must know that in our search for self-development, we cannot lose track of reality, lest we become so obsessed with ourselves that we neglect the plight of others.
