In the magic forest it is dark and cold; the fog so thick that not a single ray of sunlight shines through. The plants are withered and the lakes frozen, with nothing stirring anymore. A lone girl and a deer are wandering through this icy landscape. What are they looking for? Natia Nikolashvili has created a fantastical world as backdrop for a tale as fascinating and enigmatic as a dream, in atmospheric water colour.
