Cheetah hunting during the African night

If you have never visited the continent of Africa, you can still appreciate this extraordinary image of a cheetah on the hunt. It is nighttime, wherever the cheetah might be in Africa, and it isn’t difficult to imagine that it is also a very hot night. The cheetah doesn’t seem to care much about the […]


Giraffes

Animals will do their best to adapt. However, if we do not take climate change seriously, animals like these giraffes will only be able to adapt for so long. There is a quiet beauty to this piece, which depicts two giraffes crossing across a small body of water. Beyond them is an uncertain future. (Jan […]

Horses

Where do you think these horses are going? Unless we take the subject of climate change seriously, we may not be able to answer that question in a very positive way. Beyond that, it is impossible to look at this fine art piece without being captivated by the power and beauty of these animals. (Jan […]

Falcons hunting in the evening

This dynamic, rich piece features the striking visual of falcons in their distinctive, powerful surroundings. A moon that is simply massive, almost too close for comfort, hangs over the evening sky. The falcons are profoundly dedicated to their purpose. They will not stop hunting until they have found what they are looking for. If you […]


Lion

Where is this lion going? No one can say for sure. There is an element of mystery to this fine art example. There is even a sense of adventure. At the same time, as we think about things like climate change, one can make the chilling argument that this lion is heading towards an unknown […]

Elephants walking together

We don’t know as much about the charming elephants in this piece as we might want to, but we do know enough. We know they are a family. We know they are dedicated to one another. Elephant families are some of the most extraordinary families in the world. This is a wonderful scene of family, […]

The Penguin

Has time run out for the poor penguin? This remarkable, unique fine art piece certainly imagines that to be the case. We aren’t quite at the point depicted in this piece. At least, not yet.

Here in this fine art piece, the stunning image before us shows what will happen, if we don’t take climate change more seriously. (Jan Keteleer) Artist: Jan Keteleer […]

Walking alone

An elephant walks alone. It walks with gradual, grand purpose. It walks against a backdrop of stunning reds and other colors associated with the final moments of sunset. Perhaps, this elephant is walking because the late hour is drawing near. In hardly any time at all, the sky will pass into twilight. Will be the […]
