“From this whole nature with its inward birth I have studied and learned my philosophy, astrology and theology, and not from or through man.” Jakob Böhme

In this masterpiece of Russian animation, a hedgehog makes a beautiful journey to nature. The hedgehog appears like an icon, like a light in the night. The Russian-Orthodox Church was influenced by Böhme as early as the 18th century.
