Earth 3: Migration

About Earth 3: Migration

EARTH 3 is sponsored by Lisa Larson
Dedicated in loving memory to Rob McGrath who enjoyed unwinding and exploring outdoors, especially hiking and skiing in the Sierras. He appreciated the importance a clean environment plays on us. He would have appreciated the opportunity to preserve and protect the environment for generations to come. His work helped make this gift possible.

Earth 3: Migration

Artist Statement: Migration

This globe is hand painted in a fanciful way depicting the artist’s interest in the birds, insects, fish, reptiles, and mammals that travel great distances in migration across the earth as part of their complex survival strategy. The dragonflies, whales, salmon, the arctic tern, leather back sea turtles, and caribou are among longest travelers of the migrating species.
