Ernst Kraft - Spain


Ernst Kraft – Spain – Nuts


Many thoughts get stuck in the winding paths hidden in the skull. The brain is a labyrinthine structure as a walnut. Does it protect the inner thoughts, or does it imprison them? What if thoughts get lost in their own tiny labyrinths? When they can't find their way out, and can't communicate with each other, nor with other thinking from the outside world? Would a trepanation set them free? or would it destroy them?  It's frightening when thoughts are going nuts.
