The table is set for a lavish dinner, and all that’s missing is the main course. Dion has created a series of hunting blinds—structures that hide hunters from their targets while allowing them to shoot from long, horizontal windows—each of which reflects the different personalities that might be attracted to the sport. For Hunting Blind (The Glutton), sumptuous accompaniments for a meal reveal one reason for pursuing an animal: a primal feast.
