Trephina Sultan Thanguwa
This work by Trephina is Kulu…
All the animal’s had a big meeting.
Who was going to carry the egg of life up to the universe. The Kulu was chosen.
When you see where the egg of life was carried
Meteorite has landed and dropped, split three ways.
This is our memory of the Kulu
And life began.
