Duck Soup


This is an ironic juxtaposition of ancient-looking ducks floating in a relatively small container of aqua blue ‘water’; the container is suggestive of a pot, a lake, or a serving bowl and this vessel is raised up, mimicking a kind of large chalice, or sacred container.

Underlying the comic content belies the deeper questions: Are we sacrificing non-human life forms? I view them as sacred as human life. How would life on Earth look like if primary government, religious and cultural institutions treated non-human life as valuable as human life?
