A hand-embellished giclee print on boxed canvas by wildlife artist and passionate conservationist Robert Oxley, as part of our Autumn 2017 collection.
The piece pays tribute to Harambe, a gorilla who was killed after a three-year-old boy climbed into its enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo in America.
Robert adds: “I wanted to paint Harambe on a black background to give him the feeling of darkness stepping into the light – like going to heaven and leaving this harsh and sometimes brutal world he was forced to live in.”
