The endangered Grevy's Zebra is the largest of all wild equine and the most endangered zebra species, living in Kenya and a few pockets of Ethiopia.

Some studies have suggested that the black and white striping pattern has a confusing effect on predators when in motion, much like a rotating barber pole suggests movement in the opposite direction, or a stroboscopic or "wagon wheel" effect, where the frequency of the white/black flashes create an illusion that the object is stationary or rotating in the reverse direction.

I chose to paint the Grevy from the rear to highlight the symmetrical patterning. What is not so obvious is the use of an equilateral triangle and the use of red to pull your eyes away from the zebra's rear end to the ultimate point of focus - which is the annoyed relationship between the Grevy and the Northern Carmine Bee Eater.

All limited edition prints, both canvas and paper, come rolled in a tube.  Canvas giclee prints are hand finished with a semi-gloss UV protectant and include enough edge canvas for stretching. Please note that the “lithographic prints” are printed on Somerset Velvet Fine Art Paper and signed in pencil.

All originals and prints come with a 30-day money back guarantee. Inquire about stretched prints.
