This painting represents four magicians who are devoted to the occult arts.

The eyeballs in the jar symbolize distancing ourselves from public opinion and what other people may think of us. The mantis is another image present in our painting. It is believed that mantises come to suggest the need for pacification, calming the mind and soul, bringing peace, and tranquility. But also, to show that it’s time to move.
