The body of a person, passed out for unknown reasons, is placed in a flower field. The mysterious clot in the foreground resembles blood; some flowers look quite bloody as well. The patterns are levitating over the field. On one hand, they add decorativeness to the plot — crowning it and dragging it to itself compositionally. On the other hand, they turn into a material character, one of the elements of the unconscious field. The tilted column becomes a “portal” switching modes of reading the picture, creating the effect of looking inside the painting layers.
