This two layer relief print is called 'Komorebi'. This Japanese word refers to the beautiful effect that sunlight pouring through the trees in a forest has as it creates a beautiful interplay between light and shadow. This applies also to the marine environment, in this particular case to a kelp forest. For me this effect symbolises both the magic and fragility of nature. I believe we should understand both as a motivation to protect our precious planet.
