Nazlini fence on mudhills

The image is a link to an alternate view.

In a misty dawn at the center of the world is the morning star, tending cattle at the other side of this fence. Several years away you can see smoke from a hogan where an old man is cooking breakfast. He has already been outside to pray, recognized the morning star and his relationship to it, as he stands at the center of miracles.
A morning prayer may be heard. This prayer lasts 4 min. and 45 sec.
