The Balance. 80x100.
After coming to live in the Middle East, going to the desert became a habit for my family, our haven of peace and contact with nature.
The desert may seem sometimes quiet and with no life, but this is absolutely not true. One of the animals that live there is the Arabian Oryx.
I was so impressed that I went to research and discovered they can detect rainfall and fresh plant growth up to kms away, it's UAE National Animal,
they were extinct from the wild as of 1972 and recently were reintroduced and it's estimated 1220 Oryx live in the wild.
"Kindness" is a touching and meaningful artwork that portrays the essence of compassion and generosity.
