Title:
Die Botschaft (The Message)

Author:
Madeline von Foerster

Description:
What message would the world’s rainforests give us, if we were willing to receive it? This painting is my love letter to the Costa Rican cloud forest, which I have never visited (except perhaps in dreams). The 20 or more plant and animal species were researched with the help of Arkive, a sadly now defunct internet treasure. Although some species depicted are endangered, mostly due to habitat loss, Costa Rica is the first tropical country to have stopped and reversed deforestation – giving us hope for a re-greened planet.
