Sacerdos - Original Art


Sacerdos (“priest" in Latin) was inspired by a passage from Hernan Diaz’s debut novel In the Distance:

“Never mind memorials, relics, mausoleums, and other vain preservations from corruption and oblivion. What greater tribute than to be feasted upon by one’s fellow creatures? What monument could be nobler than the breathing tomb of a coyote or the soaring urn of a vulture? What preservation more dependable? What resurrection more literal? This is true religion—knowing there is a bond among all living things.”
