The Walls Will Fall by jenardist The Walls Will Fall by jenardist
The first print I ever made! A mezzotint depicting a story about the origin of coconuts. In this story, a King builds a fortress to protect his daughter and forbids her from going out and meeting people. But a river flows into the fortress and through the garden, and an eel swims in and befriends the princess. When the king finds out, he is furious and he gives orders for the eel to be beheaded. Before he dies, the eel tells the princess to bury his head after it is severed. The princess does what he asks, and where the eel's head was planted, a coconut tree grows. That's why coconuts have two eyes and a mouth.

In the print, the king is represented by a king fern, and the fortress is represented by trees.
