The Andean pygmy owl (Gluucidium jardinii) is originally from Colombia, Venezuela and Peru. It stands out as one of the smallest owls in the world.
Paintings for Nature, consists of a sample of 30 watercolors that realistically portray birds of Central and South America. Most of the birds portrayed are in danger of extinction; they are portrayed in their natural environment, without losing any detail of the plumage and natural colors.
Robin Schiele has devoted most of his life to the study and painting of endangered fauna species. To achieve realistic portraits, the artist has studied nature and birds of tropical forests for years.
This collection houses 30 pieces the artist worked on from 2014 to 2016. "The paintings represent actual habitat environments where several types of birds abound. The vegetation is relevant to the place where they live.””
We hope that this exhibition is a way the visitor can become aware of the natural environment of our birds to appreciate defend and save them as a precious treasure on this planet we all call “home”.
All proceeds from the sale of these works will be invested in the conservation of four protected areas that Defensores de la Naturaleza currently manages.
