EXSODUS

Description:
(Acrylic-painting on Brazilian ceramic tile, 300 mm X 300 mm (canvas size not framed size), 2008-March, by Jarret H. Clark)

This painting is tile number four of my 36 tile “The African Legend Collection”.

It also sends a strong message of Exodus for the dinosaur like ecology in this picture of a world exposed to a natural disaster caused by an erupting volcano and its lava.

Suddenly former enemies in species are joined together with just one evolutionary view at conscious mind like Noah had, which are more driven to it by the unconscious inner instinctive drive to at al cost survive and have a joint exodus from this world. 

You will find former species competing or being the prey of another would jointly act in such exodus for their common survival to provide a further argument that our natural world and the diverse species in its competing ecosystem would when challenged by another world unite to save their world.

In the skies of my painting fly my geometric and colourful versions of the Fish-Eating Pterosaur (Quetzalcoatlus northopi, with a wingspan of at least 36 feet) who was Earth’s first flying vertebrates which arose a young 230 million years ago in our Universal time.

Under the feet of an “Iguana” of the Galapagos Islands which I have included for its geometric support to my art than as a specie of this period, is the long tailed “soundly sleeping dragon’ (Mei Long).

A pigeon-sized creature of which a fossil specimen suggest possible warm-bloodedness due to it exhibiting modern day birds “tuck-in” sleeping posture to preserve body heat.
