The print depicts the dam lake, the dam hole and the plug to seal the hole with. Once the dam hole is plugged, the new order is finally born by dominating water and mountains. Wotan, the leader of Gods, in the music drama, holds a spear on which the words of contract to rule the world are written. These actual words are not disclosed. Thus, Kazama has named the words ‘new order’, which she has considered appropriate words for the secret ones. Thus, the words of ‘NEW ORDER’ in English are written in the print.
