“I see in the first deer blowing into the fire and it lighting up the foreground. The deer has just created the raccoon and the birch tree and the deer in the background is a shadow of the deer in the front having just come from the earth. You and others can see other things but the deer the ‘fire’ the light in deer’s eyes, tells of the power that the deer holds in creating life – in this case re- creating life in a barren and dying planet.”
