The Dawn of Mankind

Prismacolor on illustration board, 28" x 18" This is a creation theory much like the one in the movie "2001". The skull symbolizes a monolith and God is giving the gift of intelligence to the monkeys. The monkeys are touching the skull and therefore gaining intelligence and becoming human.

THAT MAY BE WHAT YOU THINK. BUT IF YOU ASK ME, I THINK THAT THESE BABOONS, AND MONKEYS, AND THE ANIMALS BEHIND THE FENCE ARE CELEBRRATING THE DEMISE OF THE HUMAN RACE. FREE AT LAST, FREE AT LAST. WOULDN'T YOU IF YOU WERE A MONKEY, OR A COW, OR A WOLF, OR A BABY SEAL, ETC.................?
