Friday Illustration Word "Totem".
Totem: " an object (as an animal or plant) serving as the emblem of a family or clan and often as a reminder of its ancestry; also : a usually carved or painted representation of such an object"
This storybook character has a revealing view of her totem. She is realizing that from this vantage point, high above these monstrous characters, safe in a tower and across the water, she can see that these fearsome grunting, noisy intimidating monsters are in reality harmless and very human characters.
