On the verge

The story of a hunter and a prey is as ancient as the world itself, an eternal circle of life and death, where not only a prey, but also a hunter strive for survival. The composition depicts a cheetah chasing a gazelle, both being the fastest animals of savanna. While the gazelle is saving its life, the cheetah is overcoming itself in a desperate push, as several futile chases can demand all his strength so that a new hunt becomes impossible. Only death awaits the hunter in this case. The inclination of the figures and an elongated composition emphasize the sense of a desperate rush, with its participants balancing on a fine verge separating life from death for both.
