What Lies Beneath



Lead-safety Message: Lead contamination can have a domino effect on the
environment and wildlife.

Artist: Erik Wibowo

Description of Work: This quiet scenery of a bush, a creek and a duck has a

hidden danger of environmental hazard. What lies beneath the ground behind

the bush on the left is soil with a high lead content. The buried lead can

be harmful for people who work on the soil or eat vegetables grown on the

soil. Furthermore, chemical leaching to the creek’s water may also impact

the wildlife in situ, or downstream.
