Recreations of Myth and Spirit seeks to recreate figures of mythological and religious origin as modern people.
In doing this an attempt is made to draw focus upon the idea that mythological and spiritual figures are deeply connected to – and inspired by – various aspects of the human condition, even the mundane.
