I Love This Painting

Vladimir Kush - "Sunrise by the Ocean"


"The egg symbolizes the rising Sun and the beginning of life. In many myths about the creation of the world, a cosmic egg is laid by a giant bird in a formless, ancient ocean. The egg splits into two and the sky and the earth appear from the halves of it, while the sun is seen in the yolk. You can see in the picture that the newborn Sun still hasn’t taken its final shape yet. Shreds of primary matter continue to stream from the burning sphere rising over the ocean. According to Polynesian myth, the Hawaiian Islands were born from such an egg."


I just liked the morning = eggs for breakfast connection.

  1. It looks like it may be a painting by Norman Parker (www.normanparker.com) (a blatant ripper-off of Salvador Dali but still great at what he does)

  3. DJ PIGG, thanks for checking for me. Had a gawk at Norman Parker but I don't think it's his, but I had fun looking.

    Jasmine, I wonder what google search would bring the painting up? Eggy in the sky with pylons?
