THE VALUE OF NATURE

THE VALUE OF NATURE

The Value of Nature is a series of watercolors with collages of old and current Brazilian monetary bills. The graphical beauty of this paper money inspired me to reflect on the price of nature.

If old bills lose their economic value, the same should not occur with the forests, the rivers and the animals depicted on these pieces of papers.

The Value of Nature is an artistic debate between the value of money versus the value of nature.
