Literature & references:

Jason Smith, Peter Booth Human Nature, National Gallery of Victoria, 2003:
From the flames of an apocalyptic collapse of civilization to the cold death of the planet, Booths allegory, in epic fashion, records mans metamorphosis his biological adaptation to change within the context of his apparent inability to change spiritually. Man, in this paternal world, seems unable to put aside his greed and violence to avert the aberrant evolutionary trajectory which will result from nuclear cataclysm, unfettered pollution or irresponsible technological progress.
Essay by Robert Lindsay, in Smith, op cit, p 17 For similar works from this period see p. 56, p. 60-61 (paintings) & p. 133 (drawing)
