The city of Tangier, facing Gibraltar is an ancient Greco-Roman city.
The ancient Greeks believed that it was here in the place named Tangis, from which Noah's Ark came.
The boat in the painting is made on the model of “ksars”, ancient cities fortresses of the secular past.
The girl sitting on the wall seems to be the only life in this ancient world.
The torsos around her are reminiscent of the ancient statuary and the young woman appears between them as if during the transformations in the course of time.
