    Our Solar System

    The Destruction of
    a Previous Civilization
    (An Experiment that Failed)

    Artist's note: This painting shows what Abdullah believes to have happened prior to our advent on this planet. The Sun and Earth developed a bird to such a degree that it warranted an intellect so that it might become a vehicle of consciousness. This was given but, unfortunately for the goaffadh bird, the sex drive was too strong and they so debilitated themselves by fighting over the females that the intellect atrophied. Then man was given his chance and is now in the middle of this experiment.
