If You Don't Share The Dog's Head With Your Children...

2017 Found food box cardboard

My agong shared with me that the dog’s head is a prized possession. He then told me this common saying; “If you don’t share the dog’s head with your children, they will wake in the middle of the night dreaming of the dog’s head.” He was never able to explain the meaning of this saying to me, but I took the opportunity for this piece to talk about the stereotypes of eating dog when it is a means of survival, and the idea of stories being lost in translation.
