“As an artist-naturalist my favourite place in the world to visit is Africa. And my favourite place in Africa is Lewa Downs. It is like dropping in on the Garden of Eden – the way the world used to be before modern man brought about wholesale destruction. Although many animals have been introduced, there is enough space for them to live their lives as they have always done in nature.
This painting epitomizes this aspect of Lewa. The cheetah is an orphan cub that was raised to live wild and free and safe from human enemies. The landscape in the background is indicative of the great sense of endless, wide open space.” Robert Bateman
(From the original painting Lewa Cheetah – 2010 – 36″ x 48″ Oil on Board)
