Along with the male acrobat, sperm is shot out of a circus cannon. 

The historic character Tahar (of Ringling Brothers, Barnum & Bailey’s Circus) holds up his own pet alligator. I use this image to symbolize the reptilian brain of the limbic system- the part of the human brain which appears to be responsible for our emotional lives, as well as memory formation and self-preservation through instinct and reflex.
