Green Broadbills are small, widely gaped birds found in rainforests of Borneo, Sumatra and the Malay Peninsula, where they can be seen eating their main prey - figs! They often go unnoticed because their brilliant green plumage provides them with excellent camouflage.
The anatomical heart painted on the birds back communicates my trademark message of 'Love Wildlife'.
These birds are listed as Near Threatened by the IUCN, meaning their numbers are in decline. This is mainly due to continuing habitat loss.
This is an original artwork, unframed, painted in acrylic on a plywood panel measuring 15 x 21 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.
