A Highly Detailed, Original Work of Art
Arctic_Hare_PortraitThe dynamic design by noted Canadian wildlife artist Emily Damstra a wolf’s dramatic pursuit of an arctic hare from a unique perspective. Giving the effect of gazing through the lens of a wildlife camera at a critical moment in the struggle between predator and prey, the image centers on the arctic hare as it leaps toward the viewer. The hare’s large, muscular hind legs power forwards as its front paws make quick contact with the ground. Its rounded ears are turned outwards as it listens for its pursuer. The hare’s characteristic dark ear tips and eyelashes and its thick winter coat are engraved in exacting detail. In the background, following close behind, an arctic wolf races toward the fleeing hare, its mouth open to reveal the sharp fangs that the hare is trying to avoid. The scene uses critical details, such as chunks of ice spraying back behind the hare, jagged boulders across the open spaces, windswept snow, and a barren snow-covered mountain in the distant background, to convey the essence of the animals’ Arctic habitat.
