Ordeal to reach the rest rooms

The species of animal shown in the artwork is the quokka. It is an endemic animal that lives on the beautiful “Rottnest Island” (Australia), which received that name because when it was discovered by Dutch sailors it was thought to be infested by rodents of great size. In reality the quokka is more related to a kangaroo than to a rat, they are marsupials, not rodents, and they are very friendly creatures.

 This piece represents a situation that would quite certainly give the woman who has just entered the scene a good fright.

 Notice the Fibonacci arrangement of the elements, starting from the woman leg, the quokka and then the leaves in the steps, followed by the leaves on the floor, the quokka inside the bronze container and the light shapes on the right wall. In fact, I could not content myself and I have included the beginning of the Fibonacci spiral, replacing the picture on the top of the steps, to help the viewer to find it.

Significance of the artwork: 

This artwork teaches us how most of our fears live just in our minds. When the danger behind something is understood, it can become enjoyable. 

Also, be prepared: danger may appear just around the corner…

Social commitment:

A portion of the profits from the sale of this artwork will be donated to a project to protect endemic wildlife. More information about this project will be available soon.
