The source of the work is a dream that predicted the end of the world, the sequence of events of which was set in motion by the people’s journey to kill their god. With an abundance of symbols and linear plot, the dream can be considered as a religious experience. Using the motifs presented in the dream, developing this experience further, and bringing it into the material world, the author has created a fictitious space that conveys the essence of the end of the world that was salient in the dream.
