Are you? I am. We all are. Scott Pruitt from the EPA isn’t though(?). hmmm. Is this ignorance or lack of intelligence on his part? Or is it about greed and corruption? I really don’t understand why anyone would deny that humans are the reason for what is happening to our planet.
And why is coal still on the table? Perhaps, we should just retrain the coal miners on how to build solar panels. How long could that possibly take, 2 weeks? A bit more maybe. How hard could it be? People can continue to work and support their families.
Anyway, after my beautiful friend here finished posing with that incredibly stunning Walrus skull, I included it in my Crucifixion Series.
The premise of this project questions the inability of the Human race to live and share our planet with our fellow animals. We are taking over the earth and driving to extinction a great number of species. We need to learn, and quickly, on how to cohabitate with all forms of life on this planet.
Does extinction have a cost?
The history of crucifixion dates back to the Assyrians and
ancient Persians well before the Romans (Pre-Christian era) used it as a
very brutal form of death for disgraced soldiers, murderers, slaves etc. And now the numbers of our relentless killing of animals for sport, food, clothing,
etc exceeds the millions if not billions per year. Crucifixion on a mass scale.
There are four (4) more sculptures in this series which was generously made possible by two beautiful friends and patrons of mine in California. You can see the other four sculptures here: https://www.victorspinelli.com/#/sculpture/

Where are the progressive leaders? We need leaders, not politicians.
