City of Crocodiles
By Knut Larsson Published: 4/28/2014 12:00:00 AM
Egyptian god, depicted with crocodile head, adorned with a sun disk and ram
horns. Sebek is thus a sun god. He is sometimes called Isis and
combats Osiris's enemies. In this capacity, he may be said to coincide
with Horus. His cult is very old and had its centre in Fajum, whose capital
city of the Greeks called Krokodilopolis or the City of Crocodiles."
- Nordic Family Book (1916) Swedish
"Are you prepared for the world to come, when global warming and
rising sea levels submerge and transform our planet into someplace strange?
After the whole landscape is flooded, cattle-farming has been replaced by
crocodile-hunting to make into shoes, chess pieces, soup, burgers, ornaments
and more. Stranger still are the masked cultists who tie the living beasts to
their backs for ritual combat, and a siren with a crocodile tail who seduces a
widower fisherman. Reading Knut Larsson's imagistic myth-making feels
like a hypnotising dream. Immerse yourself in this speechless, soundless
'crocotopia' and you will find its silence is brimming over with eloquence
and elegance." – Paul Gravett, January 2014
