Matthias : Odysseus!

Matthias is on a little odyssey a the moment, so I'm posting for him.

I can only guess what the artist wants to tell us with this picture, but it's definatley in the tradition of the German romantics. I would even dare to say there's a little nod to Caspar David Friedrich recognisable. The sea as a symbol of the longing for the faraway. The person from behind. Maybe Odysseus is missing his sheep?
