Painting - The Buffalo
Size: 830mm x 600mm

So the Big 5 are not called the Big 5 because of their size! The Big 5 are five of Africa's greatest wild animals – lion, leopard, elephant, Cape buffalo and rhino.
Buffalo are known to be extremely social and live in large, mixed herds anywhere between 15 and 2 000 individuals.
Horns are the most characteristic feature of a buffalo and can help distinguish the age and sex of an individual. When faced with predators, the herd will form a circle around younger, older or weaker animals, exposing their large and sharp horns as intimidation.
About Clive Ankiewics
I am a self taught South African Artist. I admire good art and my favorite subject is "YESTERYEAR." I enjoy the classics, the cars, trucks and old buildings which are fast disappearing and in my art I would like to restore these past images in your mind, a heritage for our children, something for you to hang in your home with fond memories.
