Contemplating Tulan 1

Tulan is the mythical place of our origins. This elder had some big changes coming up in his life, and important decisions to make. He went up to this ceremonial cave in order to reflect over his life, and search for council and resolutions. He asked me to go further into the cave to lay some offerings. When I returned, he was sitting in deep prayer, with the entrance behind him.
