In Fall man is harvesting and hunting, taking not giving. Since ancient times it is the period of preparation for winter, a changing of the habitual system of life, priorities and values. The time of harvest and hunting. The Fall takes: heat, colours, everything that was given by Spring and Summer. It’s time to take. The hunting is one of our basic needs. It shall be allowed to stereotype: the hunter is a man. On his body is a drop of blood as a symbol of his willingness to sacrifice himself - to take risks. On his clothes is a print with the weeping Mary Magdalene. She mourns Christ, who in this context is the victim of the hunter. The tears here are not real, they are feminine expressed through her image. In our society there’s still a taboo about men’s tears. You must fight till the blood, but don’t cry.
