The Faust chapter of the book by Goethe called « Walpurgis Night’s Dream» takes place in the Harz Mountains where Mephistopheles and Faust are climbing on a narrow path. A Sabbath , a dance of the witches occurs where characters are partially transformed into animals.

Two beautiful iconic Dalinian women with elongated hen-legs, holding a crutch, dance in front of Mephistopheles. On the ground, a gigantic woman delimitates a kind of « magic circle ».

Vivid blue and red watercolors in the back enhance the composition. In the front, some gold lines add a spiritual dimension to the scene.
