Orangutan - WWF Wildlife Collection
This is a stunning signed Fine Art Giclee Print on archival heavy weight paper from the original watercolour.
What an extraordinary creature the orangutan is. It’s one of the most human-like of all wild animals – although of course with extra-long arms and more ginger hair.
But this ‘person of the forest’ (that’s what orangutan means in Malay) is now at serious risk. And one of the biggest threats to them is in lots of the everyday products we buy.
A century ago, orangutans lived in forests all across south-east Asia – from southern China to the Indonesian island of Java. Today they’re only found on two islands: Sumatra and Borneo. As the orangutans’ forests have disappeared, so have their numbers – cut by around half in just the last 60 years.
It’s vitally important to protect these incredible animals – Asia’s only great apes – before it’s too late.
I was commissioned to paint this for the WWF - UK along with six other animals, it has been an absolute privilege to have worked with such an amazing organisation and to know that I have helped in my own small way.
All Elizabeth Grant Art prints have been taken from original artworks and printed on textured Conservation Grade paper which means the colour will not fade. As the artist I can personally vouch that the quality of these prints makes them indistinctive from the original artworks.
There is a choice of A4 or A3. The actual prints of the painting are A4 or A3 with a white border approximately 2 inches all around giving you great framing options. So overall they are larger than the standard A sizes.
