The hero of this picture in neither the star nor a human. It is just a reflection of the zeitgeist of the past and of the future. This process symbolizes the movements inside everyone who prefers to discover the world beyond the horizonts by himself.
When all the legends appeared the forest trees already existed there, the sea was a witness and was listening, rocks were just going to slide down into the water. And they all remain on their own places until now. Peoples of the old-world lived side by side with the nature, were very curious and careful. They followed it and were so good learners. They asked very difficult questions and always got the right answers.
