This moving portrait of a herd of wildebeest migrating across a fast-moving river shows natural selection in action. Two animals try and swim from the rock while another desperately jumps involuntarily into the water. The colour of the water with stokes of a cold grey-blue and burnt orange-red suggest the water is more sinister than it first appears and may have already taken the lives of some of the herd. 

 

The squares suggest that not all animals will safely cross the river. The grid-like squares could represent a timeline or calendar, such as a ticking time bomb counting down to when the animals need to take a leap of faith to cross. 

 

This painting is one you could look at for hours and would make an excellent addition to any well-lived area of your home.
