Too rapid maturation

The glass ball is hanging above the turbulent seawater. There are feathers inside of the ball. The painting conveys fragility and instability of the psyche of a child, who due to some circumstances needs to become more adult than many adults around them. These people feel a longing for the lost childhood for the rest of their lives. They try to find their childhood, and they will never be able to achieve this. They will never be children again, and they will never be fully grown-up adults.
