During my visit to the Philippines, I got the opportunity to witness cock fighting. That experience inspired me to paint this. The roosters were vicious and frightening enough, just imagine what two bigger creatures would be like... The name for this piece is kind of a pun. 'Dust' means 'battle' in swedish, but of course it also refers to the desert dust whirling around. As I painted the picture, I tried to figure out the best way to paint the dust, but it was a problem I couldn't solve as well as I wanted.
