The painting is bipolar. It is based on the antitheses, which are unity. Its "Northern" side (the top) is done in cold tones. Coolness and freshness reign there. Transparent icicles fringed with gold chains are tinkling in the stream of cold northern wind.
The "Southern" side of the canvas is red-hot. Here there are heat, fire, burning feelings. The rocks scattered here are rounded – in contrast to the cold crystal angularity. They look melted together in a furnace. The web, the stones are enmeshed by, looks jet black, burnt to cinder.
The gradient transition between the poles – the "equatorial" zone of the composition is extremely narrow. Thus the artist reinforces in us the understanding that we live in a world of contrasts, where opposite states of matter and spirit coexist very closely sometimes.
