The experience I went through when making this drawing was one of creating chaos bringing it back in to balance, as I didn't interfere with it's natural path of materialization. Everything eventually comes back in to balance. I titled it after a Greek myth that I interpreted as exemplifying the same process; As described in Virgil's Aeneid, Laocoon was a Trojan priest. When the Greeks, who were holding Troy under siege, left the famous Trojan Horse on the beach, Laocoon tried to warn the Trojan leaders against bringing it into the city, in case it was a trap. The Greek goddess Athena, acting as protector of the Greeks, punished Laocoon for his interference by having him and his two sons attacked by the giant sea serpents Porces and Chariboea. This drawing has the essence of a whole incarnated life cycle contained within it.
