A life was taken in the name of survival

the next three days we stayed in one place in order to slaughter an animal and eat a bunch of fat and organs. Also I worked on dry tanning the sheep hide. It was an interesting time I felt conflicted about the taking of the life with my hands. Truthfully killing something from a distance or in a trap or just seeing an animal dead is sad but killing it with your bare hand is a very personal and difficult thing to do.

first day of this process

Day two. Worked on making food from the sheep all day.

day 3 was finishing the dry tanning of the hide

  1. Thank you for not posting pictures of the sheep while it was still alive. You really didn’t let any part of it go to waste, did you?
