The theme of bridges connecting people is well reached in this artwork. The brilliant flash of the bridge arch summarizes the essential message of the bridge and the rendezvous. The amusing "high five"-greeting highlights the majesty of this artwork.

The artwork is a fine and storybook-like fairytale about a great adventure in the amazing city. The meeting of the cat and the mouse has an enchanting tension. It brings up how we can meet strangers and people we know via the symbolic moment that connects bridges, in many ways. It is highly expected that while children are especially excited about the artwork, it'll also bring joy to adults as well. There are many wondrous things in the world.

The starting point of this artwork are people sitting. The bridge is also a subject to admire. The bridge may present the romanticism, which comes along well in the artwork. The bridge also has a lower part, which we can see through and where the sunbeams reflect from the river surface. From this point of view the bridge itself is a work of art and as relevant to those who walk on the bridge as to others. The colors are bright and the expression is powerful.
