“The beings with wild boar, dog, crow and lizard skulls are hilarious. Even the trees upon which they sit are no more than mere stumps. In the future, their lives will crumble into nothingness. The skeletons in the painting are symbolic of the destruction and damage caused by the actions of an ignorant and avaricious society. In essence, destroying nature is the same as destroying one’s own life. In addition, cutting down forests is a slow way of killing animals. Animals that live in the forest cannot survive if their habitat is destroyed. Counting the number of animals living in an area is a way of estimating its ecological viability and sustainability.”
