(Dream: 16 January 2016)
“In the dream… a long time ago there was a popular King and he ruled the people fairly and justly. He had a sizable Kingdom and several districts and areas were considered part of his Kingdom. Most of his governors, leaders and elder councils respected and honored him. Through a long history of various wars, conflicts, squabbles and broken promises most of the Kingdom was now at peace and living quietly and orderly in their own distinctive under the King. The King wanted to celebrate and congratulate everyone in the Kingdom and decided on a Treaty of Knives.
In the center of the Capital City he asked skilled stonemasons, bricklayers, artists and engineers to design and build a large circular fountain that was 50 feet in diameter with a prominent ornamental depiction of the shield of the Kingdom at the top. From various ornate features running water would spout up and drop gently into the circular pool, which was to be about 24 inches deep. The water would splash near the center, leaving the outer edge of the fountain water smooth as glass. The outer edge of stonework would be a seating area about 18 inches wide for people to sit on and admire the beauty and tranquility of the fountain. The King planned a huge celebration with food, music and dancing when the fountain was completed.
The King then ask each leader from all the provinces, districts and areas to bring a knife or sword that depicted their tradition and history and to bring it to the fountain so the builders could artfully place them in careful design in the masonry floor of the fountain as they built it with each Knife laid flat with the point turned toward the center and embedded around the edge for clear viewing in the gentle part of the fountain water.”
