Guardian Creatures

Kari Yli-Annala

In Guardian Creatures, the father-figure is taking care of the baby with great enthusiasm. Terrible Light Creatures are also on guard. The general atmosphere of the piece is close to a fairytale or a horror story in reverse, where the most gentle creatures can look quite horrific.
