My sculpture emphasises the global issue of deforestation and the loss of animal habitat due to modern development. As our population increases, more space is required for humans to thrive; however, this endangers animals. As we cut down trees to create larger buildings, and add to our property development, wild animals living in those environments lose their homes and are forced to live within the human population. This view is expressed through the contrast of two places: the forearm is the destroyed natural habitat and the palm of the hand is wild animals and humans co-existing around buildings and roads as construction continues.
