This painting is based on real field sketches and photos during our wildlife trip to the mountain ranges of Qinghai, China. The artwork tries to let the spectator participate in what was an amazing, intimate wildlife experience in a vast, remote area.
The proceeds of this artwork will go to the Snow Leopard Trust, a leading organisation in protecting Snow Leopards and other mountain Felines like Pallas's Cats. They operate through local partner organisations in China, India, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia and Pakistan. Their strategy: conducting monitoring research, engaging communities, establishing nature reserves and negotiating policies.
