Delphinus, 20" x 20"
  • Delphinus, 20" x 20"


    Delphinus is the original oil painting by Irina Pushkareva, that depicts a dolphin swimming out of ocean waters, and looking straight at the viewer. Irina once read the the dolphins are the descends of the legendary Atlantis. Interestingly enough, dolphin's DNA is the closest from all marine mammals to human's. Scientists sat that the ancestors of dolphins lived on land in the distant past, and walked upright on two legs. We both use very complex languages to communicate with our own specie. And, that's not all - dolphins and humans share the same behaviors - we can be compassionate and help when needed (dolphins are known to save humans during shipwrecks), and we can both abuse and kill (dolphins are known to attack each other, especially males a female, and attack and bite humans). Maybe the story about Atlantis does not sound that fantastic after all.
