Ahab’s Dilemma

Pencil Sketching
  |   $300

Here is a message about climate change, inspired by the great Melville work, Moby Dick— Humanity attempts to win a losing battle, trying to whittle away at the powerful whale, maniacally determined to conquer it even while legless and lacking all respect. But the power of the whale is greater, by far, and nature will inevitably prevail.

In the last chapters of the book, The Chase, Ahab confronts the whale and in three separate attempts tries to kill it, unsuccessfully. Of course, in the end, the whale kills him and sinks his ship.

Throughout the book, the whale will surface and spout, showing its presence, albeit subtly. At the end, the whale actually breaches in an act of defiance, showing it ultimate and insurmountable strength and power.
