Earth Friend – Painting

Artist: Jan Cilliers de Wet

Oil on canvas over board.
80cm x122 cm.
Ready to hang as is but the canvas can easily be removed and rolled for transport by hand luggage or courier.

The Scarab is both humble and astonishing.
In the wild, within minutes of animal droppings hitting the ground the first scarab appears and gets to work, rolling up its steamy treasure and burying it underground where it feeds new plant growth and at the same time spreading the fertiliser evenly.

To orient themselves they periodically clamber to the top of their prize and scout the surroundings, apparently able to navigate by the sun at day and the milky way at night.

Courier fee: Please note that the courier fee is not included in the price or at checkout, arrangement will be made with the buyer after painting has been sold.
