Artist's Description

I’ve long loved the music of Genesis. This image is inspired by the classic song
Watcher Of The Skies

Watcher of the skies watcher of all
His is a world alone no world is his own
He whom life can no longer surprise
Raising his eyes beholds a planet unknown

Creatures shaped this planet’s soil
Now their reign has come to end
Has life again destroyed life
Do they play elsewhere, do they know
More than their childhood games ?
Maybe the lizard shedded its tail
This is the end of man’s long union with Earth

Judge not this race by empty remains
Do you judge God by his creatures when they are dead
For now the lizard shedded its tail
This is the end of man’s long union with Earth

From life alone to life as one
Think not now your journey done
For though your ship be sturdy
No mercy has the sea
Will you survive on the ocean of being
Come ancient children hear what I say
This is my party counsel for you on your way

Sadly now your thoughts turn to the stars
Where we have gone you know you never can go
Watcher of the skies watcher of all
This is your fate alone, this fate is your own
