The Crossing - Wildebeest Migration By Simon Combes

By Simon Combes

The Crossing - Wildebeest Migration by Simon Combes. Published as a Masterwork Giclee Canvas in January of 2005. The thrilling wildlife adventure of his African home is brought to scores of loyal collectors through the art of Simon Combes. This awe-inspiring Anniversary Edition of Combes' The Crossing reveals one of the great wonders of the animal world - the annual wildebeest migration in East Africa. "Crossing this river is the single most dangerous undertaking in a wildebeest's turbulent year," Combes explains. "In August, when the Serengeti shimmers with heat, the vast herds of wildebeest are desperate to reach the fertile grazing lands of southern Kenya. When the enormous hordes reach the crocodile-infested Mara River, tragedy can strike as some drown in crossing. Nothing can stop the animals in mid-crossing from trampling, jostling and panicking in their efforts to reach the safety of the far bank. This is not always the case, as in The Crossing , which shows its herd making a comparatively smooth and easy passage. "I attempted to create a contrast between the struggling, tension-packed chaos of the left bank and the peaceful greenness of new pastures on the right. The inclusion of a stark, dead tree, vultures, marabou storks, swirling dust and the ominous interest of two hungry lions hopefully emphasized the frantic atmosphere of the thousands still waiting to cross ... while in the background, a pride of lions keeps watch."

The Crossing - Wildebeest Migration by Simon Combes is available in two sizes listed below. This is a great painting of the Wildebeest Migration. We have one of each size available.
