The Council of Spider, Ant & Fly (2018)
Formerly there was no death in the world and people did not know exactly what it was. Ant and Spider were very wise. They held a council with Fly. Spider said to Ant, ”You are cutting yourself in two with your tight belt. Soon you will die.”
In The Council of Spider, Ant and Fly these three insects debate, reason and contemplate whether death should or should not exist in the world. In the end, they must face the harsh consequences of their decision.
