The frozen heart ritual

Something I created last year, somewhen in August I think, but that got lost in my file archive. The “bird’s nest” was build by myself as a prop for the shooting, it had  a diameter of around 40cm. Accidentally I baptized the structure with blood, because I did cut my left hand while making it. Had to do the shooting in the early morning hours, around 4 am, so no one would see the fire in the neighbourhood. Due to the hot days everyone around was scared of wild fires, but fire being my major holy element, I know how to handle it. The local butchery was quite puzzled about my request of a complete heart (it’s pig, as visually closest to a human heart), usually these are cut into half and frozen like that before being sold. But I was granted an exception and got a fresh one without the cut. Did you ever ask your neighbour if you can use their freezer to freeze a heart? Lacking a freezer myself, I did. The heart was used later to feed a few local crows who enjoyed the meal a lot and who carried out the last part of the ritual that way.

I have been silent here for many weeks, due to my stay in an area with no reception. It is still impossible to reach me by phone, but mails and messages will be checked more or less daily from now on. I will slowly work myself through the pile of unanswered messages within the next days…
