Coral reefs are tremendously diverse and valuable ecosystems on earth. This paper vessel has coral shapes cut out and is harboring fishes and baby sea turtles. The sea turtles are symbols for longevity, incorporating the hope that the coral reef can withstand the changing times. The sun is the primary source of energy for the coral reef ecosystem, so the artwork uses the light to enhance the image. I focus on themes that discuss the importance of balance in nature. The medium paper and the production process, scissors cutting, are reflecting delicacy and fragility of nature and life.
