On the canvas, a red-bearded, hairy man, evoking a wizened conqueror, is leaning against a stone wall, beneath a surprisingly expressive tree. Pareidolia, the perception of a face in the inanimate, is emphasized by the foliage that seems to contemplate him. His cart contains travel items, including a gourd and a green watering can. Holding a notebook in his left hand, he evokes the quest for knowledge. Worked in acrylic, this work of art benefits from a depth that plays on nuances and shadows to accentuate the realism and intensity of the subject, while the subtle reference to the "little Gaul" symbolizes French resilience, a nod to the work of Uderzo and Goscinny.
