Drawing inspiration from a song by the legendary Jimi Hendrix, Zen Dageraad presents a poignant representation of resilience and enduring creations. At the core of the artwork, a sandcastle stands tall, its compartments diverging in multiple directions and drenched in varying hues of yellow. This intricate castle sits atop a mosaic of sandy patches, each section uniquely shaded. The adjacent light blue waterway stretches into the distance, subtly caressing the sandcastle's base, providing a gentle juxtaposition to the land structure. Two scarlet boats float on this vast expanse; one noticeably distant from its counterpart, adding depth and perspective. Above, the sky, cloaked in a deeper shade of blue, harbors two unusual red clouds, further emphasizing the artwork's dreamlike quality. An accompanying verse subtly notes, "unlike most castles made of sand, jimmy, yours have not been flooded. Listen, they still stand," encapsulating the essence of timelessness.
