“CLEAR WATER deals with the survival of the fittest, the next generation, the balance of life and death, and the pure water we all depend on”. On a sharp rectangular block, lionesses with their cubs cautiously crouch down, drinking from the nourishing water. In front of the pride, the towering lion. A Biblical allusion, the male embodies the border between good and evil, while the drinking dectet alludes to a much-celebrated art piece. Find the hidden symbolism behind CLEAR WATER by Mååg and Byman. An ode to the lioness, drinking water and a very famous painting, it acknowledges some of the most universal and primitive topics.
