A Touch of Gold

Gold is a very valuable colour and material, it always has been. For some, gold is more valuable that nature, however nature is the most valuable of all, for without nature there would be a human race, and gold would mean nothing.

For this piece of art, I gold leafed a piece of wood and painted a peacock Butterly on top with acrylic paint. Gold is seen as a beautiful, valuable material so I used the butterfly to make people feel the same way about nature. Every part of nature is beautiful, not just the butterflies but also the snails and the beetles. Nature should be treated like gold, we should value it and look after it because we need it. It's more important to us that money and gold.
