The Tree Of Ghosts

The Tree Of Ghosts, acryl and oil on canvas, 100x125 cm, 2012

Original painting by Jan Karpíšek "The Tree Of Ghosts" is a visual assumption about possible different direction of human evolution. If our Apish ancestors would not leave the trees and would not start to walk on two feet and if they would instead of developing depredatory intellect and using instruments cultivated the spiritual and creative mind...how would our world look like today?
