Or whether tempest tossed thee here, watercolour and graphite, 14.5 x 8 cm.
How did this shark’s egg find its way into the hands of people? Was it tossed up onto the rocks in a storm or was it collected in a net? People are scared by sharks, but in reality, sharks have more reason to be afraid of us. This little egg has hatched its cargo, but the teeth of many sharks are souvenired for jewellery. For the health of our oceans and planet, we need to let these magnificent apex predators live their lives in peace.
