Devil's Foot


Tempera, watercolour, paper, 19,6x27 cm, 1989-90/// The illustration reflects a legend about a very rich landlord who promised to sell his soul to the Devil for wealth. When the landlord tried to deceive the Devil, the Devil strangled him, taking all the landlord's wealth and the promised soul. When the devil carried away his soul and money, to keep it under a stone, Devil left his footprint on the stone. This folktale is educational because it condemns dishonesty, deception, and breaking a promise. Also, the legend reflects the ethnopsychological relationship of the Latvian people with money - that richness is not good.
