SUMATRA  РTo the Ashes


Finally, SUMATRA is finished!


Portrait information:

Subject: Tiger, “Sumatra – To the Ashes”, oil on stretched canvas painting
Medium: Oil Painting on canvas panel
Size: 23.5 x 18 cm (9.3 x 7.1 in)
Year Painted: 2015


“Sumatra” is the first of my new miniature oil painting series “To the Ashes”. There will be a lot more paintings like this one, of various sizes and even media, each portraying one of the endangered wild animals. Sumatran tigers are one of the most beautiful tiger subspecies that inhabits Indonesian island of Sumatra. They are listed critically endangered. In 2008 the population was estimated at 441 to 679 individuals, with no subpopulation larger than 50 individuals and a declining trend. Sumatran tigers are the only surviving subspecies of the “Sundra Island” group. The Javan and Bali tigers are already extinct.

Will we allow the Sumatran tiger to disappear? Will they become only our distant memories? Will the only Sumatrans adorn only our walls, instead of Sumatra’s forests?

Will they go To the Ashes?
