Description / History: 

This work is a dedication for Can Goknil. Who is an artist, children books illustrater and writer. We have a saying that the tales come from behind the enchanted mountain. So I imagined her sitting in her house placed on "the" mountain and telling lovely stories to children. I use clouds and trees frequently in my works to emphasise the circle of water. And water means life... I use lines to symbolise the layers of life; socially, psychologically and physically. Because they're all similar. The earth is made up of layers just like ourselves.
