Tears of the Sun


Edition: 1

Made from: Slate and stained glass with detail

The details in the lower panel show a section of the earth with some of the worlds tallest buildings depicted, as if reaching ever higher up into the sky. The Sun sheds tears of fire in dismay at Man’s constant lack of kindness to the planet and it’s lack of humanity to each other. For as we reach for the stars we have to dismantle the earths natural resources to the point of its own destruction. It is my hope that we can collectively turn towards a greener and more compassionate future, both to the planet and to each other.
