Around the lovers everything is mixed with balance and harmony : inside and outside, the Belorussian village and the flowers from France. A dark blue dominance expresses the peaceful night. Under the huge bouquet the couple is lying for a better dream. Bella is naked and modest. The fruit basket and the free dove complete the composition. The musicians did not come.
