Artist Statement: "This detailed piece was created to help people realize the beauty that is being destroyed when deforestation occurs. Can you imagine the serenity of a place like this in real life? Just for it disappear. Nature is what gives us life, the air we breathe, and cleans the air we pollute, constantly. So why are we taking its life away at such an exceeding rate?"

More Information on Deforestation from National Geographic:

"As the world seeks to slow the pace of climate change, preserve wildlife, and support billions of people, trees inevitably hold a major part of the answer. Yet the mass destruction of trees—deforestation—continues, sacrificing the long-term benefits of standing trees for short-term gain.

Forests still cover about 30 percent of the world’s land area, but they are disappearing at an alarming rate. Between 1990 and 2016, the world lost 502,000 square miles (1.3 million square kilometers) of forest, according to the World Bank—an area larger than South Africa. Since humans started cutting down forests, 46 percent of trees have been felled, according to a 2015 study in the journal Nature. About 17 percent of the Amazonian rainforest has been destroyed over the past 50 years, and losses recently have been on the rise."
