Once asked: “What is your favorite smell?”, the answer is always: “The smell of my own truth which might be a lie.” Feces never lie. They are the consistent indicators of health, a part of the essential body functioning and a natural way to fertilize the soil. Stercus is honest, an honest indicator of quality. It is the secret sweetness that attracts, and the animalic side that offends. A sign of an infinite life circle. The smell of an end and the beginning.
STERCUS COMES FROM LATIN MEANING ‘FECES’.
