The painting is a powerful reflection on the beauty and diversity of the Tubbataha Reef, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which is not only a natural wonder, but also a source of food, income, and tourism for the people and communities in the region. It captures the vibrant colors and textures of the coral reef and conveys the richness and complexity of the coral ecosystem, which supports and sustains a variety of marine organisms.
The painting is a tribute to the conservation and protection efforts that are being done by various groups and individuals, such as the Tubbataha Reef Natural Park Management Office, which is responsible for managing and monitoring the reef.
