Explosion (or implosion) of the Western civilization under the impact of 'evil' yellow rays (radiation?), with prominent symbols of Christianity (crosses), but with less obvious symbols of Judaism and Socialism.
Torched Jewish house of prayer.
Hands of hidden Jews, streched upward in a gesture of plea for life - above the underground 'bunker' are boots of a policeman - rifle with a bayonet points toward the unfortunate victims - the painting captures the moment before death.
In the backgroung is the electrified fence of a concentration camp - breaking candlesticks and the Star of David are symbolic of the tragedy of Holocaust.
The composition symbolizes the yearning of an incarcerated person for nature - in vain, the hand strains to touch the vine which intrudes from outside.
Casket opens up as the strobes of light impinge upon it - the liberated energy permeates the painting - the composition is painted entirely with linear brushstrokes.
