Defendamos la Creación

This poster by A.Vonn Hartung was designed for an ecumenical conference on the environment organized by the Catholic Commission on Justice, Peace and Ecology in Puerto Rico on Earth Day 1993. (Due to my prompting they added Ecology to the title of their commission.) The poster is interactive. Crayons were provided to the participants who purchased the posters–the proceeds of which went to the Faith-based environmental movement. It depicts St. Francis giving thanks for Creation but he stands in a semi-polluted world. The scripture reading is from Isaiah 24:5 (“The earth is also polluted by its inhabitants, for they transgressed laws, violated statutes, broke the everlasting covenant”).
