Daggers have been used throughout human history for close combat confrontations, & in many cultures had been used in ritual & ceremonial contexts.
This distinctively designed dagger is created out of a contrasting mixture of black metallic surfaces, white polymer-like material & orange stones. The alien-bone design on the grip is adding eccentricity to the shape of the hilt.
In old Buddhist writings, the spider lily is said to guide the dead through samsara, the cycle of rebirth, thus spider lilies symbolize death & reincarnation.
Spider lilies are also associated with final goodbyes, thus they are the perfect match for daggers, the weapon connected to the final fights.
With a detailed, natural environment this piece is aiming at evoking a feeling of the contradiction of something strong & delicate.
The sound, Monk's chant, delivered from a Buddhist Temple, is gently enhancing the animation's meaning.
