Walt Herboï: The water carrier
Walt carries two large buckets of water attached to the ends of a sturdy pole on his shoulders. He has brought water from the river to his village every day since he was old enough to take on the task.
The two buckets, however, are pierced; part of their precious contents is lost drop by drop.
At the end of the long walk from the stream to the village, the pierced water buckets always arrive half empty. This happens every time, day after day.
For many years Walt has only delivered half of the water collected from the river to his village.
Many villagers laughed at the ineffectiveness of the water carrier. However, after a few years of what was perceived by many to be a pittance ... the results became visible: All along the path taken by the water carrier each day, the once dry and dusty trail was bordered by vegetation lush.
Through his labour, Walt Herboï is committed to honor the colors of Avalonia ... drop after drop, brick after brick.
