Part of my series "Animals two by two"
A pair of poison dart frogs in different stages of their life cycle. They start life in the water but transform into land animals as adults. This painting juxtaposes the two frogs just before and after the metamorphosis occurs, each in their natural environment in/out of the water.
Interesting to think about the drastic change in the life of these amphibians... a combined change in their environment and in their physical appearance. Does it have implications about the feasibility of drastic changes in human life too? I'd like to think that we have some of this resiliency and adaptability...
