My project consists in a a panoramic photo essay that illustrates a mythologem.
The story illustrated is that of a young girl trapped in a chastity belt she wants to set free from. She learns about the existence of a magical plant that can unlock any lock: iarba fiarelor.
As the legend guides her, she leaves a baby porcupine in the forest locked inside a wicker cage. She waits until the next day for it`s mother to come and save her baby using the plant, porcupines being the only animals that know how to find it.
The legend says that those who find it should insert it under the skin of their right hand so they will be able to open locks for ever.
