Each artwork is accompanied by its own narrative  //  "Cousin of the First Fire, this bioluminescent deity is thought by some bog and marsh cultures to be the Sun itself. The ancient Egyptians called him Khepri the Scarab, and much like the cultures of the Vexed Mists, the Egyptians believed Oraphau journeyed through the heavens daily. Smaller insects native to the bog, known as beables, are similarly luminous, and are considered auspicious creatures, related to the gods. "
