Leopard Shepherd on the desert
Never sweating, spread the message
Shepherds are repeatedly elevated to higher (typically heroic) stations in life in the Old Testament (Joseph for example). Deserts are often the sites of crucibles for biblical heroes throughout the entire Bible (Hebrews in the wilderness, Jesus fasting, etc.)
AK may be suggesting a more fitting metaphor for “lost souls” by referring to them as leopards rather than sheep. This furthers the uplifting message of the album by ascribing a more regal and prodigious personification to unenlightened humans.
Finally, while marching unenlightened (yet redeemable) lost souls through the desert of the modern world, AK would like to remind us that he never breaks a sweat.
