In 1861 during the time of Charles Darwin’s publication of his book ‘The Origin of the Species: By Means of Natural Selection, or, The Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life.’ c.1859 a man by the name of Benjamin Disraeli ‘coined’ this enduring phrase* in Oxford, England.

The question is this- Is man an ape or an angel? His response to his own question turned out to be memorable: ‘My Lord, I am on the side of the angels.’

*from the Thames & Hudson c.2002 ‘The Mind in the Cave’ pg. 23 (for more info click here)

An observation: The famous explorer and naturalist Charles Darwin, along with the likes of Alfred Russel Wallace (1823-1913), challenged the popular beliefs of the Church with regard to human evolution and origin of species. Despite the evidence provided by Darwin’s observations there remains an innate human curiosity of the spiritual version of the great story.

I have no drawing or paintings of an ape per se, I do however have a chimp painting titled:
‘chimp with a handgun’
12×12 in.
acrylic on canvas

Hi my name is hälts, I am an artist, geographer, filmmaker and mostly a human being. Art is a gift that has been with us for time immortal. Mother Earth is the greatest artist, and who keeps me humble on my path. I consider myself to be a hybrid artist. I make murals, digital art, painting (acrylic and watercolour), filmmaking, photography and drawing. I inspire while also being inspired. Life is a gift, and that's how I treat it. I care about this planet, and all the life it sustains. Thank you kindly, hälts
