Sleeping bear

I used to be fascinated by the huge halls of Turku Castle and sketched a white-white farm called "Nunnakapeleli" I added color and a candlelight ambience to the castle structure. On the wall is like a fresco (actually a white wall) with a sleeping bear. Does motherhood or femininity itself sleep there? Do you dare to arouse it at all?
