FIRE DEVIL


ON THE LEFT IS THE DEVIL OF MOLTEN LAVA FACING TO GO. HE HAS TO 
GO BECAUSE THE TOP OF THE EARTH IS COOLING FROM BEING MOLTEN 
FIRE AND MOISTURE IS FORMING. THE THREE BIG STICKS ON THE RIGHT 
ARE TRUNKS OF VEGETATION THAT HAVE FLOATED THROUGH THE SKY 
AND FOUND SOME COOL LAND WHICH THEY WILL SINK INTO AND TAKE 
ROOT. THE MOISTURE IS TEETH WITH ROOTS OF WATER IN GUMS OF 
EARTH.
