Within the Nile Delta in Egypt a semi-artificial ecosystem constructed as a masquerade, where a cult of humans and beasts are in co-existence. The festive building merges and changes seasonally with the Nile floodplain according to the third nature's calendar. The masquerade is constructed as a social ecology of psychological guardians, material gardeners, drummers, charmers, hyenas, pigeons and fish. These caretakers maintain a psychological climate of ecstasy, fear and frenzy within the third nature.
