These beautiful little primates live in the remote rainforests of Bahia in Brazil, and they are found nowhere else in the world. Striking with their inky blue-black fur, lined with the firey oranges and yellows, particularly around their head, hence their lion namesake.
These primates are listed as Endangered by the IUCN, meaning their numbers are low. This is partly due to their exclusive habitat, as well as deforestation.
The anatomical heart being clutched in the animal's tail communicates my trademark message of 'Love Wildlife'. I promote this as a hashtag (#LoveWildlife) in all my Twitter and Instagram posts. You can find me on both apps at @Jane_Mutiny.
This is an original artwork, unframed, painted in acrylic on a plywood panel measuring 21 x 30 cm. It is signed and dated on the front and features the animal name, locality and conservation status on the back. The work comes ready to hang, with d-rings fastened to the back, and the front is finished in a UV protective matte varnish.
Thanks for looking!
