The Fortress - Musk Oxen And Wolves By Carl Brenders

By Carl Brenders

The Fortress - musk ox and wolves by wildlife artist Carl Brenders available for sale from Art Barbarians Wildlife Art Gallery. A herd of Musk Oxen fend of the attack of a pack of wolves in this exciting wildlife art print for sale.

The history and evolution of our wonderful planet is something that fascinates me a lot. On a field trip to Africa, I was amazed how many animals are witnesses of the prehistory. Elephant, rhinoceroses, hippos, warthogs and even giraffes are timeless. How grateful I am that they are still here in our modern times. How could they make it while so many others vanished?

Most of my paintings are based on experiences in the wild, or study work in zoos and game farms where I often have access behind the scenes. One field trip brought me to a game farm in Fairbanks, Alaska, where they had a breeding program for muskoxen. If one animal really is a witness of the prehistory, it surely is this horned ox species.

Since my childhood Iíve had a fascination with this impressive animal, but I wasnít aware how small it is Ėonly two-thirds the size of a bison. The musk ox lives in the same areas where the Arctic wolves live. During millions of years, the muskoxen developed a special technique to defend their species against wolf-like predators. When attacked, the bulls make a circle around the cows and the calves, like an impenetrable fortress. The wolves try to open that circle and make the group run. When they succeed itís the moment to get a calf or a weak cow, but often they have to give up as the bulls donít yield.

Wonderful field work with white wolves and with muskoxen made this action painting possible. It became the biggest painting I have ever done. - Carl Brenders. This Musk Oxen Fine Art Print was Released in September of 2009.
