Ocean Atlas Premium Poster
The artwork depicts a local Bahamian girl carrying the weight of the ocean above her in reference to the Ancient Greek myth of Atlas, the Titan who held up the heavens. With our oceans and coral reefs currently facing collapse from numerous threats including overfishing, habitat loss, ocean acidification, global warming and water pollution, the piece symbolises the burden we are currently asking future generations to carry and the collective responsibility we must accept to prevent its collapse.
