In the ancient Near East and Greece
there was a tradition of a goddess
called "Mistress of the Animals," who
was to help humans subdue animals.
I thought it was time we outgrew our
need to dominate nature, so I imagined
a woman who, instead of being a ruler
of nature, is a participant.  Instead of
struggling to tame the animals, she
dances with them.
