Wildlife Prints

“Wildlife is and should be useless in the same way art, music, poetry and even sports are useless. They are useless in the sense that they do nothing more than raise our spirits, make us laugh or cry, frighten, disturb and delight us. They connect us not just to what’s weird, different, other, but to a world where we humans do not matter nearly as much as we like to think.
And that should be enough.” - Richard Conniff

Hand signed open edition A3 fine art print on watercolour paper.

This illustration is a tribute to Rue, the baby rhino. This is his story:

Baby Rue lost his older brother to poachers in 2013. Three years later, his (very well known ) mother was shot by poachers. Upon being shot, she ran, wounded and with Baby Rue by her side, all the way back to her central territory, and died in the riverbed with her horn on.

Baby Rue was found by Our Horn is Not Medicine’s pilot who was out patrolling in the bathawk the next morning. He had been fighting off hyenas and trying to suckle from his mother the whole night.

Luckily he was found, rescued and sent to a place where he now lives in safety.

There are plenty of stories like this. And it’s an important reminder that we all have the power to do something, no matter how small, by casting our vote for the kind of world we want to live in with every purchase or donation we make.
