While looking at the mountains criss-crossed with the light stripes and the dark shadows, it may be difficult to notice a hard-skinned creature emerging from the rocks and cracks. Mimicry is the natural, evolution-specific property of creatures and plants to adapt to the broad spectrum of living habitats. Being unnoticed in grass, on stone, in a bush of live and fleshy vegetation somewhere means to live.   
Mimikrijom Marta Tuta postavlja pitanja što je uistinu bitno promatrati i na koji način ljudsko biće doživljava samog sebe kao pojedinca u cjelini u kojoj živi kroz titraje koji nastaju i nestaju, zabilježene na papiru. Zelmbaći, teksture planinskih gorostasa, crni psi i kloroplasti bića su koja se skrivaju, izlaze i ulaze u rasjekline među točkama i crticama u njezinim snolikim crtežima, koji vode od jednog kraja prema drugome u cjelinu i na taj se način povezuju u titranja jednaka onima u svemiru ili na Zemlji. 
There are many situations based in the reality of our world as well as those that are rooted in imaginative spheres, just as real and equally loose and hidden in the tissues and textures of one another, as the eyes that are hidden in the shady shadows of Velebit mountain, which are observed through rasters and black planes and lines.
