Markhors are a wild goat native to the mountains of Afghanistan, Pakistan and into the Himalayas. They are Pakistan’s national animal where it is illegal to kill them. Unfortunately, because of the male markhor’s extraordinary rack, they are a target of trophy hunters.
“Otis” is 36″ x 36″ oil on canvas, painted in 2014.
All the Animalia paintings in the SALE shop are from 2013 or 2014, my first years painting endangered species. Beginning in 2015, I would meet every animal I painted, and subtle differences ensued. More than any other reason, that’s why these paintings are on sale. I no longer show them with post-2015 work.
Shipping is included within the US on this painting.
