La Le Lu - und das kleine Herz friert zu by Aqua999 La Le Lu - und das kleine Herz friert zu by Aqua999
First of all - what's on the pic?
The background is made of two photos of the very same place - one is from WWII and one is from present time.
The kid is just a random kid taking part in WWII, and yes, children were involved if you didn't know.
The kid is handing sand/gold dust to my OC, and I can imagine this kid saying "you sleep too". Free to interpretate.

Overall inspiration to this art came all from song "Sandmann" by Oomph! and the title is my fav part of the song. I kept it in original form (german) because I liked the rhyme and couldn't translate it to keep it rhymed.

La le lu
Und das kleine Herz friert zu
Wenn die andren Kinder fragen:
"Wie viel hast du?"


(La le lu
And the small heart freezes
When other children ask:
"How much do you have?")

Originally I wanted to draw a poor kid handing/getting money, but then my friend reffered to WWII and I decided to draw lil german soldier passing Sandman's sleep sand to XXI century. "So you can see our life through your dream" sort of stuff.

I'll put up translation of the lyrics (parts) if anyone wonders what the check gave me the idea;

Sick Germany
Can you understand their fear
When they fall asleep?

La le lu
Only the man from the moon
Watch poor children sleep
Therefore you sleep too

La le lu
And the small heart freezes
When other children ask:
"How much do you have?"

Sandman, Sandman
Turn off the light
The truth is cruel
So give me sleep

Sandman, Sandman
Come to my house
Pour sand into my eyes
And never wake me up

Dry bread makes cheeks go rosy
The boy lives in a high poverty
He cries, his lungs already hurt
Hunger flames in mouth of a child


- Sandmann by Oomph!
