Inspired by a curious little folktale about hardships of finding one’s true home.
It’s told that once lived a man who would rather feel the flow of water through his webbed fingers than the cold, rough surface of the earth beneath his feet. This man lived his life underwater, swimming with his fish friends for days on end without taking a breath of air. He was among the fish, but not quite equal to them, for some secrets were kept from him. One time during his swimming journeys he came upon a mysterious tomb with burbots guarding the entrance. They did not let him enter – the secrets within the tomb were beyond human comprehension.
In this design: the guarding burbots and the webbed hand reaching for the tomb.
