THE GHOST OF THE MOUNTAINS
Snow Leopard Skeleton (Panthera uncia)

Price: £ 45,000
Dimensions:
L 187 cm x W 44 cm x H 66 cm
L 73.6 in. x W 17.3 in. x H 26 in.

A truly priceless piece of natural history. A real skeleton of a Snow Leopard. Often referred to as ‘the ghost of the mountain’. They are seldom seen by humans. Because they are rare and because they live were most people will never come; The Himalaya’s and other higher parts of Asia.
We were fortunate and had a chance to obtain a skeleton that is complete and in tact. It came from a zoo in Eastern Europe where it was part of a breeding program to preserve this wonderful member of the Panthera family.
We decided to create a work that honours that local nickname ‘Ghost of the Mountain’. We experimented with different ways of colouring the bones and found a recipe to create a deep black colour with a bronze glow to it. And we mounted the bones in a traditional Victorian way. With brass rods and wires. Over 650 pieces form a majestic animal skeleton on a Marble and 18th century oak base. An absolute highlight of the Darwin, Sinke & van Tongeren 2018 Collection.

This Snow Leopard comes with CITES papers.

Title: THE HORNBILL THAT GOT AWAY

Price: £ 140,000
Dimensions:
H 120 cm W 200 cm D 100 cm

An impressive 3D old master painting inspired on Rubens fighting tigers and lions painting. A Siberian tiger ripped open a Victorian cage with marble crown. A pair of Wreathed Hornbills flew for their lives but only one got lucky. The other one is crushed under the giant claw of the beast. Instead of being satisfied by the meal this tiger is just focussed on the one that got away. It's a human story.  A work inspired by the paintings of The Flemish artist Peter Paul Rubens.

Note: This specific tiger was part of a breeding program in a zoo. It died of kidney failure at the age of 15. None of the animals are killed for their work. All animals lived and died in captivity. Died of natural causes. All animals have all necessary paperwork that enables you to own them 100% legal.

Note: The Hornbill on the metal base is an optional separate artwork. Please inquire for details.

Title: INFERNO EQUUS

Price: £ 40,000 / $ 53,000
Dimensions:
H 160 cm W 140 cm D 100 cm

A mysterious composition of war horses on a burned antique base. This work, part of the TIER exhibit at MOA Museum, was exhibited with a painting of Dutch artist Armando. This painting, called 'Waldstuck 7-6-99', was saved from the fire in Armando's previous museum in Amersfoort, the Netherlands. The horses, who have antique cannonballs for eyes, seemed to galop into this dark burned forrest. One of the horses stands out because of his special manes that are curled like the wigs of 17th century french generals and notables. This refers to Lodewijk Napoleon who used to live in the building of MOA Museum. Altogether this is a very special art piece. One of the highlights of the TIER expo.

This work is currently on display in San Francisco at Saint Joseph’s Arts Society by Ken Fulk.
