The form can be recognized as a abstraction from some children comic or movie character ( nemo and jill from “finding nemo” and Barney from “barney?!”). Painted in silver at the front, it can reflect any light source on it, and white at the back; show you the meaning of the artwork is depends where you stand at. From a natural environment you can see the silver part; reflecting the endangered background. From the other part you can see the white paint as a foreground of a natural environment.
