Never letting to go beyond the circle of life.

She is harnessed for a long journey; on her back she carries an entire store of wool.
She walks without rest, and sees with eyes full of strangeness. The wool merchant has forgotten to come to get her, and she is ready.

The weather is very hot. Today, large scissors that will cut and cut represent mercy for the alpaca.
