Painting - The Rhino by Clive Ankiewicz
The Leopard (Number one of the big 5)
Size: 830mm x 600mm
Medium: Oil on Canvas
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.
The rhino is the most endangered species of the Big Five. Rhino poaching worldwide hit a 15-year high in 2009. The illegal trade is being driven by an Asian demand for horns, made worse by increasingly sophisticated poachers who are now using veterinary drugs, poison, cross bows and high caliber weapons to kill rhinos. Very few rhinos now survive outside national parks and reserves.
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.
