The Stone of Destiny is a comic trilogy in which we witness the journey of the protagonist: a stone with human limbs and a stoic expression on its face. The narrative of this abstractly autobiographical comic is built around individual events that thematise self-discovery and finding one's place in the world, setting too high expectations, hurting a loved one, rejecting beauty standards, fear of failure and manipulative relationships.
