What is our impact on the environment and the plants and animals within it?  To me this piece demonstrates that we are at a turning point, a point of balance, the edge of the knife.  In this character I sense disbelief and outrage but a willingness to forgive.  The natural world, via this character, implores us to change our ways.  The use of bone represents tragedy and pessimism: tragedy for the irreparable damage we have already done and pessimism for our long‑term prognosis.  The use of four arms gives a sense of urgency to this character's message.
