The elements of this work carry much symbolic significance. Triangles, which include a circle within or are divided by a line, are ancient forms representing Earth, Air, and Water. The text is an element through which I explore aesthetics such as pattern, transition, and colour contrast. It also signifies communication, or perhaps the lack thereof, between people and Nature. Symbolically, the text implies that these creatures need to be protected and are intrinsically valuable as living, sentient beings.
