“This new image is part of my series of works concerning devas,” says artist Michael Parkes. “There is a myth that creative “devas” (who also could be called “guardian angels”) were on this Earth in the beginning to help design everything on Earth from plants, insects, to mammals. They’ve watched over their creations from the beginning of their time on Earth and will continue to do so until the very end of their existence, individually and collectively. Many of these creations are threatened with extinction today. This was the theme in my painting, “The Last Lion.” Another painting, “Deva,” shows the deva in the process of creating the dragonfly. Here you have a tender moment between the polar bear and his deva.”
