Whether animals can soothe our hearts can naturally make us redeemable. The animation of sand and flowers is based on the footsteps of death in the Snow of Kilimanjaro. It tells the story of the protagonist re-examining the African grasslands and re-examining life before dying. The footsteps of death make people think about where our lives will eventually go. In animation, the footsteps of death are represented by natural objects, from vultures to hyenas to shadows in the picture. At the end of the animation, the protagonist died, and the god of nature took him to find eternity.
