This book was inspired by the visit of a Roma-Village in Slovakia. The mentality of the Gypsies, between cheerfulness and melancholy, reflect the texts of Romanian gypsy songs. They are the artistic expression of a group of simply tolerated, underpublilized people. Anywhere at home, in the mountains, the forests, under the open sky - the cities are close and foreign for them. The intimate relationship between nature and human nature leads into a magical life.
The book leads artistically into the landscape and the places of life of the gypsies. Interiors unfold a rich ornamental life of their own. Animals show themselves to be useful humanitarians. Portraits describe their own human type. In their color, the prints are inspired by the color perception of the Roma. The text gives a brief historical insight into the history of this people, which is marked by displacement and persecution.
