Is it too much responsibility to be the most intelligent species on Earth? This piece is part of my new Fossils series. This mixed media work was made with bitumen, oil paint, acrylic paint, volcanic sand, and natural resin. The piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.
