I wanted to explore the idea of a dogma. There is a certain choice we make to believe in something. A dogma is a set of principles laid down by an authority as incontrovertibly true. There is a choice we make to believe in this, to walk through that door into a certain belief. This choice is represented by the dog in the doorway. However there is also the choice to walk past that door and instead explore a world of uncertainty. A forest that could be filled with more opportunities to believe.
