Robber
Allegorical scenes of village life, clearly inspired by the poetic style of Parajanov, show a father and son, temptation, a deed and punishment, in the mythical setting of a garden. Scenes of country life and animal husbandry are infused with rural lyricism. Apples become figurative tools, and abundance is redeemed through crucifixion.
