Volume IV

s h e l t e r    

Every winter creatures small and large are driven by their biological urge to take shelter during those long dark months. This urge goes back to the memory and a longing for a return to the womb or the egg, our first form of protection.

During this time, creatures seek the cover of shadows, the refuge of subterranean burrows, the warmth of another's skin close to the body. They yearn for downy textures to comfort, that remind them of the mother's breast, and layers to wrap the body like so many blankets.
