Anne Wölk's painting "Horsehead Nebula" enables a journey into a distant structure made of glowing interstellar gas. The extraterrestrial landscape, executed in fine detail, offers the opportunity for a moment in quiet reflection. The artist transfers the beauty of the mist into her painting cosmos. The scenery shows an untouched, inaccessible place in nature and enables deep immersion in color, space, and light. The Horsehead Nebula is a 3 light-year part of a dark cloud in the Orion constellation. Like a horse's head, its silhouette stands out majestically against the glowing red emission nebula IC 434. Because of the prevailing conditions in the cosmos, molecules form there that cannot exist on Earth. The gas masses of the dark cloud are in motion, which means that in a few thousand years, the nebula will no longer resemble a horse's head. The nebula is 1,500 light-years away from Earth and therefore appears a quarter the size of the Earth's moon.
