The meeting


The meeting

One day I find myself in the world and I allow myself a single right: to demand humane behaviour from another.

The story begins with an unprecedented meeting among the people of the sea.

On the one hand sailors and Portuguese adventurers, on the other fishermen and riverside dwellers from the West African coast.

The fisherman is under the protection of the voodoo god Zangbeto, guardian of the night and keeper of fishermen.

On one of the fishing nets there are the two horns, which symbolise him.

The explorer however is protected by the stylized cross, which in the 15th century was found on the sails and banners of caravels from Portugal.

He leans arrogantly on his musket.
