Calling the Dragon (North, East, South & West)

Arlander Annette

Wrapped in a green scarf, the artist calls the dragon by ringing a small ceramic bell on the roof of the bunker on Harakka, in part 1 facing North, in part 2 facing East, in part 3 facing South and in part 4 facing West. The round of the year is repeated twice, once from the left and once from the right.
