An original, contemporary interpretation of an important theme, with vivid colours and lots of detail. Reefs are often called “rainforests of the sea”. Shallow coral reefs form some of the most diverse ecosystems on Earth. They occupy less than 0.1% of the world’s ocean surface, yet they provide a home for at least 25% of all marine species. Coral reefs are built by colonies of tiny animals found in marine water that contain few nutrients. They are fragile ecosystems, partly because they are very sensitive to water temperature. They are under threat from climate change, oceanic acidification, blast fishing, cyanide fishing for aquarium fish, sunscreen use, overuse of reef resources, and harmful land-use practices causing water pollution, which can harm reefs by encouraging excess algal growth.
This painting would make an instant focal point in any room in the home or office. The sides are painted white, so further framing is unnecessary. It will be carefully packed for delivery in bubble wrap and a professionally designed box. It will be sent by next day tracked delivery.
