Artist's description:

A dream about how men treat mother earth the same way as they treat women. They treat a woman as meat and devour her for their own uses, they regard her as a fantasy figure, she gives birth to them, they confuse the matriarch with the sexual fantasy. They are toys hovering between adolescence and childhood. The whole picture is inside a bowl where the toys have desires they must consummate. The dodo represents extinction and what is consumed, the fly serves his up to the frog. The goldfish are free to go anywhere yet they circle the goldfish bowl out of habit, they can't change. Goldfish bowls symbolise a fragile eco system in my work.
