I take conventionally monumental pictures of Eurocentric myths, fairytales, icons, and histories and ask where they come from, why are they granted the authority of tradition, how are they relevant, and how they help form a right-wing and esoteric world-view. I take a look at how white skins and beautiful strong young bodies, heteronormative relationships and their fascination with violence, power, ideological righteousness and purity are normalised in this way of storytelling. As well as how their relationship with animals and nature puts humans first, gives them divine right and imagines a mystic hierarchy of worth and nobility that extends to all of the universe and lifeforms.
