Postcard From Oputia: The Moon Tether

Oil On Canvas

80 X 100 cm


In the world of Oputia the moon was threatening to leave its orbit and wander away into space to explore.  The powers that be on Oputia were so worried that they ordered the construction of a moon tether – giant cables would be thrown around the moon and secured to anchoring points to be built in a convenient landscape.

In the end The Moon Tether was unfinished and never needed – for a consortium of the planets, led by Tiptoe, Sojurn and Whoppiter managed to persuade the moon not to leave; The remains of The Moon Tether remain in the landscape as an archaeological curiousity.
