About the artwork

This colony of Chinstrap penguins was the first I met on an iceberg in Antarctica and both the special shape of the iceberg and the animals fascinated me instantly. From the sailing ship Bark Europa I could observe the animals in peace and quiet and none of the penguins seemed to be disturbed by our presence. On the contrary. The animals often swam towards or parallel to the ship as if we were a whale or inhabitant of Antarctica. The penguins must fear the sea leopard in particular, but killer whales are also often present. Therefore, an iceberg offers good protection and also a good overview of the surroundings to recognize dangers early.
