The soul? The sages also speak of the soul of the animals. The spirit makes the human being a human being.

There is the smell of varnish heavy in the air when I wipe the canvas with the sponge, without hope that with the movement my thoughts will pass. Thoughts that are directed only to the next work, or to what this work wants to be created for.
