029 "Coelacanth meditation" framed print for TOHOKU
A lost civilization. The deep seas are governed by silence. There in the depths, a pair of living fossils, two coelacanths, peck at eggs that shine like jewels as they drift in search of life.
"Coelacanth meditation" is an artistic representation of its theme song 'Chopin Ballade no. 1, Op. 23', a masterpiece that masks its passion in loneliness.Listen to the song on YouTube here.
The artwork is a collage created by Unissograff artist ca37 using a picture of a coelacanth that was drawn by a 10-year old boy.
At the time he made the drawing, this young artist was living in Seto City, Aichi Prefecture. Wanting to help the children who had lost their hometowns to the tsunami of The Great East Japan Earthquake, and being fond of coelacanths, he drew the picture using an image from a picture book.
