Noah's Gift. Watercolour on paper, 420 x 297 mm, 2010
Noah's Gift" is the first in a series named "Second Chances for Humanity". The concept behind these works is that Humankind is given opportunities to undo the damage done to Planet Earth. In this illustration, Noah returns, giving back to us all the extinct animals. He's delighted! And so are the animals: Carolina Parakeets, a Baiji Dolphin, Passenger Pigeons, a pair of Golden Toads, a flock of Tasmanian Tigers, a Quagga and even the Dodo run, fly and jump with excitement as they return to roam the Earth once more.
