A Composition with moths and butterflies

‘The classical attack of the Zulus is in the shape of a bull buffalo. The head, he horns and the loins. First, the head moves forward. The enemy moves in to meet it. But it’s only a feint. The warriors in the head disperse to form the encircling horns. The enemy is drawn in on the loins. The horns close in on the back and sides. Finish.’
