Hello sir, thank you for the fave!I would be very curious to know why you, who crave natural material like skulls into jewellery, which is (I can be completely wrong) some kind of reminder of the harmony between nature and ancient traditions, could find appealing in my cruiser drawing, inspired by the era where man thought he could dominate the elements with science and technology.

While I do indeed celebrate nature, that vast complexity of which we are part, I also celebrate artifice, things well and sincerely made. Art and Science are both my joy, and I tell people that my influence is from the Paleolithic, the Neolithic, and the Art Deco eras, making me half mystic and half steampunk mechanic. I do not regard this as contradictory; I am a member of a tool-using species that I hope will survive its successes and its errors.

Thank you for your answer! I like your philosophy, that technology and nature are not necessary opposed, and I must say that I am then very happy my picture caught your attention! I think that, in European culture, nature is often seen as dangerous and must be tamed, while in Japanese or Native American culture, we are also a part of it.
DonSimpson's avatar
Parts of nature are dangerous to us, and we are dangerous to part# of nature. It's complicated.

Indeed there is no simple answer when it comes to the relationship between humans and nature, its definition being quite blurred in my opinion. Truth is somewhere between those who claim that there is no climate changes and whose who prophesy the end of the world... In the end, like most species, it is all about the survival of the fittest, (meaning the most adapted to a given situation, not the strongest like many misunderstood...)
