The essence or the hidden identity of the helicopter appear as a dichotomy; on the one hand a total threat coming from above, something you cannot possibly escape from, the all-seeing flying eye in the sky, the omnidirectional warmachine; and at the same time, its opposite: a rescuer coming from the air, from heaven above, as an angel. One aspect of this idea is of release (or freedom): Release from threat and fear but also freedom that can be attained if you grow above and beyond yourself. This cipher of evil and illumination is united in the image of the dragon, the snake of fire or the plumed snake. Such basic figures emerge from an meta-individual archetypal reservoir of images of the human psyche traversing the mythologies of many different peoples.
