This is the 2nd video from our series »alienation, soft approaches & encounters«. Why we broadcast a series of this kind? Because we think for getting more familiar with Biestmilch we need to change our distant view on nature, respect the fact that we are part of it and so are all other living creatures.
The turtle is such a graceful creature, so deeply balanced in its midst, endowed with a natural slowness I envy it for. In Hawaiian language turtle means honu. The Hawaiians revere the honu as a guardian spirit that can take the shape of any animal. In mythology it conveys good luck, can transform into a frightening monster to be released among enemies or a living bridge that brings two lovers together. Besides, it is the foundation of some of the islands.
For Hawaiians the honu is a sacred animal. Never touch the honu, if you are lucky and bump into one. This video clip is perfectly suited to change your pace while watching.
