This work depicts a different type of god: instead of perfect and unchangeable he is still forming himself, chiselling his body continuously. The blood and the flesh (the wooden chips) he consumes to survive, being a autocannibalist at communion. If he finishes himself (if ever), he will ring the bells of the belfry where he resides, to announce his presence to the people.
