as part of “Walk This Earth Alone” art exhibition, hosted by the Gallery @ Grande Provence, Franschhoek, 12 August – 26 September 2012

We as humans display, explore and examine the natural world, trying to understand it, sometimes taking advantage of it and also ultimately conserving and protecting it, or pieces of it. There is a beauty to be seen, appreciated and respected in everything that surrounds us. ¬†When we realize this, and experience it constantly, it might awaken the need and desire to protect living creatures so that museums don’t end up being the only place where we can view creatures, plants and ‘specimens’ from nature.
