IS IT A REPTILIAN MISSION OR IS IT A REPTILIAN DISGUISED AS A MISSION? NATIVE AMERICANS, BEWARE! Scaled Mission is a one-page PDF (8.5" x 11") that can be printed out in either color or black & white. This new piece is part of Dorame's Alien Apostles series, which re-imagines the spread of the California missions as an alien invasion. These works use Hollywood B-movies, anthropological field notes, and history books to take a second look at California's attempted conquest.
