This is an image from a series called ‘Once Upon a Time’ (a fairytale).

This story is about the freedom to imagine a better world. Emerging from the depths of a dark forest, three adventurers: head, heart and hands embark on a quest for liberty, encountering a panoply of characters and overcoming a series of challenges before reaching the Happy Land. This picture represents the scene immediately after a storm has abated and as the angry clouds part, the travelers spot land in the distance.
