I always felt a special love for seahorses (Hippocampus). I was really getting sad while finishing this piece of art … stupid humans, destroying everything and trying to get the last specimens before complete extinction.

    Amazing piece Diana, and I share your love of seahorses, and your concern over their fate. Your imagery is very clever and sends a message… a very strong one in fact. I also love your processing style and the simplicity of the image. Well spoken with no words!

    They are very wonderful creatures, I hadn’t realized they were an endangered species. it’s a very poignant piece. Well done Diana

    I also love seahorses and find it difficult to believe (at times) that the Asian markets are such heavy consumers of them

    I love the way you have depicted them in this piece and, I especially love the malevolent look of the eyes on the free one. The caged one shows its despair very clearly.

    Your image speaks eloquently of their plight. Very well done.
