Clownfish I

Material used: Glass etching and painting

Clownfish have a very special symbiotic relationship with poisonous anemonies. Darwinian evolution wrongly paints Nature as brutal competition or as Alfred Tennyson put it, “Nature red in tooth and claw” (In Memoriam). Nature has advanced much more by cooperation than competition, and the nucleus, the mitochondrion and the chloroplast are evidence of intimate relationships that have merged.
