MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE Polystone Statue
Kerby Rosanes stunningly detailed, ink-based art comes to life on Mighty Jaxx! Inspired by the classic distress signal, a rolled-up paper sealed in a bottle, this piece is a commentary on the impact of widespread marine pollution—humans will ultimately be the ones suffering from its effects.
Utilizing a special dual-casting technique, the bottle itself is translucent—imitating an iceberg. At its core is a skeleton, a representation of humanity’s death. Yet, surrounding this bottle of death it is a thriving marine ecosystem, from sea turtles to corals.
The message? “At the end of it all, nature will find its way to thrive but humans will suffer all the consequences of the problem we created ourselves,” shares Kerby Rosanes.
