Mike Pickett – Holding on for Dear Life

Drawing, Original | 42 × 60 cm | Framed


Out of stock

A baby gorilla clings to her mother with hope in her innocent eyes for life. This is in contrast to her mother’s eyes, cast in shadow, as her dear species faces the very real and grave danger of extinction. A drawing of hope amidst fear.
