I first read abot Lyra’s world a few years ago when Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials Trilogy was released and I was completely captivated.
The idea of having a ‘Daemon’ that is external to me, my soul and is a reflection of me on a very personal level, fascinated me.
I’ve read theories like this before. Shamanism asks you to look for your totem, an animal that is your guide in life.
To have this placed in fiction was brilliant. I loved the books and Lyra and her fantastic story.
Bearing this in mind, when I found out about the movie to be released at the end of the year (title), I had to visit the site and see what was on there.
This is what I found.
Is this a likely representation of me? Do I really resemble the Diodium the Snow Leopard?
I like to think so!
