The image is part of my ongoing examination of the fraught relationship between humans and all non-human animals. Trumpets shows dog/human creatures in a surreal circus-like setting. The trumpets have Biblical overtones and also refer to the ancient Greek trumpet contests where volume not musicality was the criteria. My work is influenced by the prints of Goya, especially the series Los Proverbios/Disparates.
