Palm oil for fuel and food plus trade wars is devastating the rainforest and natural habitat of Orangutans. The sweet wrapper-clad palm nut kernels depicted represent the companies destroying the rainforest and food we are all-consuming in ignorance, despite the consumer power we hold in the west. This is represented by the scales of justice being wrapped by the root of all evil, also the gold weighs heavier than the dove of peace. The Helang palm oil fuel truck displays the word 'Killer', stylised in the Kit Kat Font, which is inspired and taken from the Green peace campaign. Finally the font on the sweets in the Orangutans hand depict Wars, instead of Mars. This is a reflection of the shorter palm tree that the orangutang sits under, a vast farming crop production, that has replaced the natural tall trees that Orangutangs should freely feed on, instead of getting shot, fed poison or caught in fires used to cultivate the land into propagated shorter palm tree mass production. Finally, at the time of creating this Fine Art, the Chinese were in my opinion wasting more money visiting 'The Dark Side of the Moon'. I often relate to this as 'Moon Money'.
