I discovered this image by stumbling over a dead rat. I was in my attic searching through old boxes of toys and books. Apparently either the cats had killed it, or it had just crawled into my domain to die a digniﬁed death amongst stacks of great works of western literature and MUSCLES (a delightful little collection of Japanese toys from the 80s, if you didn’t know). Regardless of how it got there, in the dim lighting I didn’t see it and suddenly found myself cheek down on the ﬂoor. This was a fortuitous occurrence as I was peering through an accidental tunnel between boxes at a discarded sheet of paper. I reached in and it was embellished with the mysterious image you are now seeing before you. The words “GURGLE ANTIQUITY ANASTASIA” were inscribed on the back.
I know that I must have drawn this, as it is executed in my own hand, but I cannot remember doing it. If anyone has any interpretations please let them be known.
The Rat was given an honorable burial.
