Satori Deer


Read this article in Fortean Times and found it again online...
Andrew May's Forteana Blog: Satori - ape, goat-man or deer?
 The story of the satori deer(see link) inspired an immediate mental visual train in my mind. The story is a zen Buddhist allegory for enlightenment coming to those who can silence chatter of the world inside and around them( a gross over simplification on my part)
BUT
I want to start a new series of images that deal with themes of freedom. The woodcutter in the story of the satori deer only silences it after he has stopped trying. What other stories are there to draw upon?
Exciting times!
