The birds broke me. Birds don't just sit on people. They just don't. That takes utmost trust. They TRUST HIM. That just... *deep inhale* that is the thing that completes the emotions for me. This is so beautiful. The way the sunset colors blend with the peacefully pale hues and the stark but soft contrast of his skin. This whole thing is just so utterly exquisite and explanatory in such a simplsitic way. This belongs in a museum. It really freaking does. Dear God I pray this kind of art and message right here are what humankind is remembered for. This belongs in the archives of time as a classic. Future children need to look at this and remember learning of it as an "iconic" painting from their textbooks, the way we know Van Gogh's "sunflowers" or Monet's "Water Lilies".
