Artist: Athar Abbas
This work is set in the African continent as is Zebras at a Water Hole, but this demonstrates the cruel side of Nature and the struggle for survival. The tiger has bloody chops, and the deer has been disemboweled
Both animals are carved in wood and then painted, so that they are two-dimensional and stand out from the crushed stones that fill most of the picture.
The trees are made of pieces of twig and herbs and the bushes in the background is also made from herbs.
The artist's signature is again seen in the crushed stones set into the corners of the wooden frame which the artist has made.
Mr. Abbas has never been to Africa, but says that he enjoys watching programmes on TV about African animals, and these programmes were his inspiration for the two pictures.
