“Janus” is the Roman god characterized with two faces that could see in two temporal directions, the past and the future. Hence, he is associated with beginnings and endings. Here the left side shows the consequence of the activities on the right side, where a colony of carpenter ants was becoming established in the wood made wet by the broken branch opening. The original wound on the left represents the past while the fresh cut on the right, suggests then future.
