The highly detailed and colorful African wildlife work of art was created by artist Adrian Chesterman. From the artist: “Working on such a large scale and with a subject that I like was a very exciting challenge. I have done drawings of animals almost all my life and I love nature and wildlife. Therefore, drawing a gigantic scene with all these wonders of the animal kingdom was a great delight.”
