Oceans are really amazing ecosystems. They have lots of biodiversity in them and many mysteries. This is the idea that everyone has of the oceans, but when people face reality they see that not everything is as perfect as it seems. The great idea of the ocean has been decreasing because of contamination. In my piece we can see how humans and the oceans need to be one and work together for the benefit of both, since humans started contaminating this ecosystem, humans are the ones that need to take care of it. We need to take action now and reduce the damage that oceans are suffering, before it gets worse. The colors of the picture mix with each other to show unity, and the ocean and the body of the woman join together to form just one figure. The girl is looking to the ocean; this represents how sometimes we can clearly see the problems and damage to the ecosystems, but do nothing to stop the problem. Finally, above the girl we can see a cave, it represents how sometimes we are so closed in our thoughts and in our perspective that we can’t see what is around us, the benefits that it gives us but also the damage we are causing.
