The painting visualizes the feeling when a happy period in one’s life is followed by a bad one. This state is expressed by creating an inhospitable, claustrophobic space and an absurd situation in which a rocking horse is obliged to watch a TV screen without a TV signal. In the scene, elements of retro nostalgia and dystopia are mixed. The premonitions of the end of an era and the loss (of childishness, innocence, naivety) are strongly implied.
