This artifact depicts my blood oath to the project.

The 7 tribes of Hungary were united by a blood oath during the 890's AD before they settled into the fertile valley that was to become their home. It is a commitment of life with the penalty of death. In my mythology, I depict the shape of the dual narrative on the deer hide in my blood. It is my own oath as well as an alchemical transmutation of my life essence into the myth itself.
