Art description- The three habitats of nature-water, earth and sky- are represented in a work which combines a contemporary simplicity with the best tradition of fine etching. Against broad color areas of sea green, warm earth yellow and deep sky blue, the fancifully detailed, exotically decorative fish, rhinoceros, and peacock are rendered in incredibly delicate etched lines.
