The white dove is projected onto the two buffaloes and walks in both contexts, the first wild, and the second a political one. The cliché symbol of peace, and peace as well as the projection, is something intangible, and even this, in a wrong context could have a fatefull end, which will be cleaned up and repeated, on and on.

*Alan Garcia, former president, belongs to the APRA Political Party, known for their violent actions, therefore nicknamed and called “the buffaloes”.
