A female figure - the shape subtly reminiscent of a fly agaric - forms the focus of the painting. The forest scene opening in front of her seems to be rooted in reality, but at the second glance it looks strangely like a fairytale - as if stemming from a childlike imagination - almost surreal. Light and shadow are chosen so that a noticeable pull into the work arises. The stage-like presentation reinforces this impression and gives a theatrical effect. Composition and presentation work hand in hand to convey the image's idea: the deep-seated desire to escape the sometimes tiring and drab everyday life.
