About "Tsavo's magnificent 7, Di_1 DIKA"

This is for people that share my love for elephants- more specifically "Big Tuskers". They are rare! Only about 30 left in the world! About 25 in Africa and 5 or 10 in Asia.
Tsavo and Amboseli are at the top of the list when it comes to places with big tuskers.

About 3 years ago I went with the Askari Project (an Australian NGO) to try and find some of these tuskers. We ended up seeing 4 big tuskers including an unnamed an unknown female. Unfortunately within a year of my visit they were all dead.
For the last couple of years I have been using my art to generate money for conservation. And I'm fortunate to say that I was able to significantly donate, so during one of our drives near Satao camp I pitched the idea of doing limited edition prints of Tsavo's Big Tuskers. The proceeds of these prints would then be donated to the Tsavo Trust for Elephants.

It took surprisingly long but I eventually made pencil sketches of 7 of these magnificent animals. They were put in print in Australia (and they are still in print). The money raised through the sale of these prints goes to the Tsavo Trust for Elephants (and I'm proud to say that 100% of the profit goes to the Tsavo Trust). Now here's my frustration - 3 years down the line and I'm disappointed that people's interest in these magnificent animals have somewhat withered. And I wonder - don't people realize what they have!? An "international heritage", if I can call it that
The price is for the full set of 7 sketches.
