-<fs large>Spirituality is not necessarily linked to a specific religion. Ancient tribes and “primitives” had their own beliefs that helped to explain unknown aspects of their surroundings and make sense of their being on this earth. Godly beings, spirits, deities and other creatures had a place in their lives, accompanying them in joys and sorrows. Rituals worshiping them provided stability and helped to deal with life challenges. Some of these beliefs grew into larger religions, others remained on the level of folktales and myths. Before landing on the paper these tales traveled from place to place or from generation to generation following small or big changes made by each storyteller just like a public shrine. </fs> +<fs large>Spirituality is not necessarily linked to a specific religion.

-<fs large>**“Anything but the weevil"** is a shrine for all invisible, imperfect, insignificant yet diverse and precious creatures (dead or alive) we are surrounded by everywhere and every day. These creatures, no matter how common and scruffy it might seem to be, have hidden powers of guiding us into the world of magic. This shrine invites you to take a moment to look around and search for what you might find precious, beautiful and wordy exactly on the spot that you are standing on. Is it the color of the grass, a shadow of the leaves, a weird bug or irregularities of the tree bark? Once you do find it, you can contribute to the shrine to celebrate and worship your insignificant element of beauty. This growing shrine is our growing tale of what we appreciate most nowadays. Because when we talk about folklore, we forget that also now we are creating our own tales, traditions, rituals. And, based on those tales’ future generations will interpret how we lived with each other and what sense we made of our surroundings and environment.+<fs large>**“Anything but the weevil"** is a shrine for all invisible, imperfect, insignificant yet diverse and precious creatures (dead or alive) we are surrounded by everywhere and every day.
