This is a painting I did after visiting the zoo in Emmen. I watched a big turtle in a tank and was fascinated by it's appearence.. I always think about how it would be to be really tiny.. the world must be way prettier then.. Watch a Bugs Life, AntZ or any other movie( Honey I Shrunk the Kids).. I've got more paintings of giant turtles with tiny human beings.. If I could choose which animal I'd like to be, I probably choose to be a turtle, cause they grow old, are beautyful, have an almost poetic way of moving through the water and.. well, watch FInding Nemo! :) On my imaginary planet, there are a lot of giant turtles.. Their belly has a compartment which contains a form of helium-gas.. Because of that gas, which is constantly refreshed by their body-system, they constantly float about 4 or 5 meters above the ground, and are able to swim though the air, though not too high.. In my world people place big baskets filled with sheets and pillows on the turtles' backs, and use them as a form of transportation.. Only it's the same thing as with dragons, the turtles don't allow everyone to just hop onto their back:) I'll load up some drawings of this later..
