Rêve des Anciens
When human beings still coexisted with the natural world.
The world was covered with plants and trees, and various animals, god beasts, people and gods coexisted.
A story of the ancients.
It has no name yet.
A pillar of fire is blowing out of the mountain and burning red.
A new world is about to be born.
Looking up at the black sky, a rumbling sound echoes across the surface.
When thunder god strikes a drum, golden lightning runs with lightning.
The king of dragon emerges from the clouds.
It makes rain on dry ground and plants and flowers bloom on the ground.
As you walk through the grass field, you will hear a pleasant voice.
When I turned to the voice, children were born from the earth.
Children dance and sing while laughing to express the joy that has been born in this world.
Meet various creatures.
A long-nosed elephant, a big beak Lecoq, Shouting tiger ,Raging bull and so on.
A big bright red sun is setting below the horizon.
The light illuminates the surroundings and the world is surrounded by golden light .
The ancients wants to go near the sun, and brings its round head closer to the sun.
I wonder when ?
People came to call it heaven.
A pleasant gospel can be heard.
