I’m on a black background. At the left edge of the picture you can see a part of my head with my mouth. The mouth opens. From the mouth cavity slowly and horizontally honey forms out until the jet is quite thin. Then the honey begins to retreat back into the mouth. By continuously repeating this action, reference is made to the code of oral absorption and unwanted oral reproduction. Disgust can be triggered in the observer.
