Hope to beautify these animals and promote them, into a more glorious position. Bats are indispensable in many economies, but they also share several things in common with humans.
The artist interprets them as ecological warriors, who can correct the balance of the world, empower the important participants in the mission of the earth, and all the incredible biodiversity continue to survive.
