First Lesson

Koalas are exceptional mothers—caring for their babies and making sure they learn everything they need to know, however long it takes. I wanted to show that unconditional love a mother has towards her child. She supports them in their adventures, as a guide and as a protector. I’ve composed this piece based on my observations. I’ve witnessed joeys reaching from their mother’s backs for leaves. To see this endearing act is rather special. In an ever-changing world, perhaps this should be our first lesson in the true support, protection and love of life.
