Inspired by the work of Joseph Campbell and Carl Jung, 'Truth' becomes the protagonist of this Hero's Journey. A constant changeling., shifting through various manifestations and personifications of itself, (i.e., religion, philosophy, art, literature, anthropology, mythology, and psychology) each feeding off the last.

It is a visual allegory embracing the power of myth.

"We have only to follow the thread of the hero path. And where we had thought to find an abomination, we shall find a God. And where we had thought to slay another, we shall slay ourselves. And where we had thought to travel outward, we shall come to the center of our own existence. And where we had thought to be alone, we shall be with all the world."
-Joseph Campbell
