Description

In a not-so-distant future when lions are extinct Jachin-Boaz, a middle-aged mapmaker, leaves home with the wonderful map that was to tell his son where to find everything. In the ruins of a palace at Nineveh, his son Boaz-Jachin finds the wall-carving of a great lion dying on the spear of an ancient king. In a series of rituals, he evokes the long-dead lion and sends him out to stalk his father. Then he follows on the lion's track.show more
