Ant Fynn an internationally renowned artist from Zimbabwe, who I believe captures the spirit and likeness of an African animal in its habitat like no other Zimbabwean artist, has given me the greatest of honours in donating to me personally this amazing oil of Kuchek and his family. What touches me deeply is that our departed Surprise and her missing young baby son Shama are in the painting, as is George who has recently been chased out of the family.
Ant’s talent as a wildlife in habitat artist, and his love of every living thing and commitment to the protection and conservation of the Zimbabwean wildlife is an example to all. If any of our family of hippo supporters would like to work with Ant for a painting of either their own adopted hippo or wildlife in general then please go to Ant Fynn’s site www.antfynnafrica.com and contact him mentioning that you are a supporter of the Turgwe Hippo Trust.
Love to you all Karen and the hippos xxx
