Ivan Vicente - "Sentinel"
W: 950mm x H: 750mm x D: 1mm
This work is unframed
The Cape Vulture is one of nine different vulture species and is classified as vulnerable if not endangered due to their dwindling numbers mostly due to poisoning. Here a vulture rests in a tree surveying the area around him. Vultures have been recorded at speeds of 120km/h when diving out of the sky toward a kill. Vultures will typically arrive at a kill in ones and twos but will all leave simultaneously to a nearby watering hole or river to wash and clean themselves, sometimes sitting with their wings outstretched to dry in the sun.
I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa and spent the early years of my life in Mozambique and subsequently moved to South Africa. I spent my childhood growing up on farms and living with nature which resulted in a strong bond with Africa, its wildlife and people.
