Mister Nomad is homage. It is quite simply a declaration of love and gratitude.

This is a note of sincere thanks to the anonymous nomad who made the first batch of butter. We don’t care if history says you made it by accident. To us you are the best nomad there was. You and that horse or goat of yours to which you tied a sheepskin filled with milk. By the end of the day having been constantly jostled over hill and crag, transformed itself into creamy silky smooth butter. You Mr. Nomad are our hero, our everything.
