The Three Guides

Ink on paper

80 x 50 cm


Poem written by the artist:

Over everyone they keep watch,
everyone of us they guide.
Three beings so diverse
yet so alike inside,
over everything in their own soulrealm they preside.

Premonition, Love and Caution are their names,
they, who take pity on the petty man’s games.

They were appointed to lead the way assigned.
Only love among them, is often blind.

But thus it is ordained, for mankind to flourish
the danger of failure, after all, mostly sharpens your courage.

And without it, who would we be?
Nothing more than a broken beast.
