The sketch for this carpet was made during the СOVID-19 pandemic. The depicted enigmatic beings are associated with black (negative) and white (positive) energy. The carpet shows that the so-called black is trying to absorb the white. It is not yet clear whether this will ultimately happen, or whether it is even possible.
