“There is another world besides colour”

Zomeruur

(Summertime)

Show Explanation

The basis of the drawing are two clocks which illustrate the changing of the Winter Hour in the Summer Hour. 1 Hour ahead. Summertime means the change of time, longer light and the increase in temperature. Summertime usually means vacation and travel. An indicating arrow along with an equality sign reinforces this change.

The central part of the drawing is a face, the clocks are the eyes and the nose is a tennis racquet with a tennis ball. At the bottom, the mouth is created by the interplay of lines.

Summer time means sun and beaches. The bottom part of the drawing consists of dunes and water from the sea. The two V’s stand for freedom and vacation, and are also glasses with tasty exotic drinks on holiday. Holiday also means traveling and having fun.

In the central part around the eyes a boat is drawn and its sails are the three pyramids of Giza. The boat stands for freedom on the water. Also in this section there is a small pick-up, which stands for travel and freedom in nature. In the top left is the image of freedom representing total freedom while traveling.  A big sun emphasizes the warm summer.

In the top right there is a symbolic image of a person, which stands for any individual who is traveling.

The rotation is positive, holidays must be a positive experience.
