Whale Shark, wāhine, moon.
The whale shark is a slow-moving, filter-feeding carpet shark and the largest known extant fish species. The largest confirmed individual had a length of 18.8 m. The whale shark holds many records for size in the animal kingdom, most notably being by far the largest living non-mammalian vertebrate.
Unfortunately the impact of human activity like shark finning and the plastic pollution in our ocean is detrimental to these guys and heartbreaking. Because whale sharks are filter feeders they could be swallowing hundreds of pieces of plastic an hour because of pollution. A study in Indonesia found the surface waters where they feed are so contaminated, the big fish end up eating lots of plastic.
This piece is a way to express the awakening between humans and nature that we could have. Let her creations teach us to how embrace and breathe the wonders of this world, to get back into sync and stop destroying the treasures and protect them instead – ‘to reconnect with nature’. Letting the whispers of nature influence our actions. Reconsider the fundamental abilities to survive, to feel alive, and challenge our skills as an integration back to the wilder.
