Constant Gardener

Stunning painting of an Aberdare elephant, by world famous wildlife artist Guy Combes.  Regulare Edition Print “Constant Gardener”

Regular Edition Print
Hand signed by the artist 21″x 28″

Guy Combes is a world famous wildlife artist. This print is not framed but is hand signed. This picture was drawn from photographs taken of the bull elephant in the Aberdare forests, for which we are raising support.

Guy Combes has this to say about this elephant ;

“My proximity was so immediate that I was almost able to see the thought processes in his eyes going from surprise to indignance, as he brought himself to full attention raising his head and looking down his trunk at me. I was able to snap a couple of shots before beating a very hasty retreat as indignance turned to rage and a charge was imminent.”
