Imagine a world ruled by whales. I live in the desert southwest of the U.S., which at one time was blanketed by the sea. This thought changed the way I think of this land. About 40 years ago, I created a series of paintings pairing shamanistic figures with reef fish and titled each of the paintings "And The Desert Was The Sea." In the decades since, I have returned to the concept time and again in different formats and media. And I have most recently moved such related imagery into the world of NFTs. They continue to give me pause to consider the implications--thus my rumination about a world ruled by whales. Might they find some use for human pituitary glands and send hunters onto land to track us down and "harvest" us? Would they listen to our chatter and try to understand? Would they wonder about just how intelligent we might be and perhaps even become concerned that our numbers were falling dramatically due to their predation? I wonder. I just have to wonder.

Thank you, Lawrence... The description alone is worth as much as the art. I would pay a lot more for the canvas. To have a 1/1 NFT of yours is truly an honour.
