This piece comes across as strong and purposeful, as the artist tries to make a statement regarding an issue about nature.
There is a quite an amount of space in this piece that it seems as if it consists of two different paintings entirely.
Despite how strong it comes off as, the message is very unclear, ambiguous and closed, and it is only up to the viewer what
to make of it. On the left is the claw of a dragon, and a shadowy sphere is positioned at the bottom right. This piece, however, is subjective in its meaning yet exceptional in its execution.
