An artwork, a Universe:
We must unleash his imagination for the artwork to be meaningful. The key elements are combined: the owl image of the underground and the world of the night is also a symbol of wisdom and philosophy. The pyramid that sits on top of the illustration here has no connection with the Illuminati. It is a symbol of spirituality qu'Ackboo diverts and appropriates without proselytizing for any religion. The child at the center of creation symbolizes the future ( "youths are the future"), a Métis future, ready to defend himself and opening the field of all possibilities.
