On "Faust's" motives (Goethe)
In a picture is represented The Black Poodle, which followed Faust and Wagner. The Black Poodle was the image of the devil (Mephisto) .We should pay attention on the colours here. The background of the picture, paunch and eyes of a dog are red. This redness comes from The Red of a pernicious flame of an underworld. In general, this colour usually associates with flame and blood - energy and vital force. As it is known, The Goethe"s Mephisto is not only a ghost of evil, but also an inconsistent ghost of rebellious, who fires a person, encouraging to search and experiment.
