Eyes in the Grass – 10″ x 19 3/4″ – 950 Edition Signed and Numbered Paper Print

“It is the lions that you cannot see that the prey should fear. A lion can hide in grass scarcely higher than a foot. Their attack technique is a charge from an ambush. The moment before the charge, they are crouched very low, both hind feet on the ground and both eyes on the subject of the attack. It is this moment that I have tried to capture in this painting. By the time you realize that this is more than just a field of grass, you might be thinking your last thought.” – Robert Bateman
