Artist's note: This painting shows how a comet from the centre of the galaxy struck the Earth and knocked
off two pieces. This idea is presented in Gurdjieff’s All and Everything [Ch. 9, ‘The cause of the genesis
of the moon’], which describes how the comet Kondoor detached Loonderperzo and Anulios. Loonderperzo is the Moon;
Anulios is always facing the Sun so we cannot see it. On another scale the painting depicts life striking a person
and their emotional and intellectual parts being separated from the body. This creates for us the task of balancing
our three centres if we want to perfect ourselves.
