Linocut image, 500x700mm paper

Story: The Koedal is the last living dinosaur. Therefore, those people who are of that particular totem possess great knowledge of their cultural tradition. Some people have begun to forget their cultural totems. They choose any creature as theirs with no respect. I feel that this is a significant part of our culture, that is being forgotten. This print shows a confused person trying to seek his totem. He is approached by two spirits from the snake tribe who then try to pursue him to choose the snake as his totem.
