The global environment and humans living on Earth resemble a parent-child relationship. Humans depend on the environment and the Earth, similar to the dependency of a child on their parent. This metaphor can fit with the concept of communicating the importance of environmental stewardship and humans' responsibility in caring for our planet.

The "One Big Eye" art series is a metaphor for a large heart, unconditional love, and the ability to take everything in stride. When we come into contact with nature and living creatures, we always wish to have a large heart to love and nurture them.

In this relationship, humans can learn and grow in nature, just as children do under the care of their mothers. Nature offers countless lessons about interconnectedness, resilience, adaptation, and the beauty of the natural world.

This connection fosters a sense of responsibility and gratitude, just as a child learns to appreciate and care for their mother as they grow older.
