Hanuman vs. Whale - This piece uses (and even abuses!) a few different, very loaded, mythic, spiritual, and natural bits of symbolism. The whale, often an avatar of nature's wisdom, is seen here transformed into a mechanized implement of disharmony and destruction. Hanuman and the unicorn are both mythological symbols of nobility and purity of motivation. The whale's role is purposeful in that the whale is both a mythical and real creature, possessing psychological symbolism which is comparable to the heroes.
