HYENA – ACRYLIC PAINTING

P1020731(1)a

I must admit to doing this a couple of weeks ago, after the giraffes, but I thought I’d hold it back and release it on the eve of  the Chinese year of the dog. With global politics being what they are, I thought an hyena carried some resonances.

This particular one was part of a family living in a drainage culvert under a road in the Etosha Pan in Namibia. Apparently they gave themselves away by their white faeces which is a result of the bone they crunch. With the lorry sitting directly over them, the low frequency reverberations of the engine forced them to come out and investigate.

They did have a look of vulnerability, but I wasn’t going to extend an arm in sympathy.
