“For the animal shall not be measured by man… they move finished and complete, gifted with the extension of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings: they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the earth.”
― Henry Beston
A painting illustrating the connection between everyday creatures of the non-human and human world. They stare out at us, sharing the same space, the same world. We are all animals, and we all deserve to live in harmony with nature and each other. However, One of Us, in our arrogance, ignorance and greed does not abide by these rules.
Original painting : acrylic paint on A4 canvas board.
