Artist Statement : "A Chief who had made the mistake of throwing a bowl of soup that he did not like on the floor had to apologize to his family. He went to the mountains to meditate. A wolf happened by and sang him a song. He then created a dance for the makers of the soup, the people who had harvested the ingredients and the witnesses. He was never to spill soup again." - Robert Sebastian
