Cactus Gallery LA
47 LA CORONA (The Crown) by artist Michelle Waters
Acrylic on wood panel, 9 x 12"
People who've visited Africa (or haven't, but are fascinated by African wildlife, like myself) will recognize the oxpecker on the giraffe's head. Oxpeckers help giraffes and other animals by eating ticks off of them!
Michelle will donate 20% of her portion of the sale proceeds of this piece to the Center for Biological Diversity, which is working to safeguard legal protections for endangered giraffes.
Also shown here is the original Don Clemente Gallo card for LA CORONA.
The riddle associated with this image:
El sombrero de los reyes.
The hat of kings.
