Animal portrait





Antelope puppy



I chose to portray a puppy of the Dik-Dik antelope species because they are extremely rare. The exotic antelope is probably the smallest in the world, I was struck by the fact that Dick-Dick marks his territory with his tears!

The Dik-Dik antelope is about the size of a small dog, the name derives from the fact that when the animal is afraid, it comes across a zigzag and makes a “dik-dik” sound to warn that danger is coming.

These animals are extremely shy. In nature they are found in southern and eastern Africa, where many dangers are hidden.

It is typical for them that they do not live in flocks but live in pairs. They are very beautiful animals and are subject to poaching because their skin is extremely precious. Currently, the species is endangered and zoos around the world are trying to preserve their populations.









I wanted to portray this beautiful mammal to express the sense of adventure that, through its pride, takes me to the depths of its infinity gaze.

I feel sympathy in the shape of his species.

The curious aspects distinguish it: the main characteristic of the camel are the two humps, which do not contain water but reserves of fat (up to 36 kg per hump) to be exploited when food is scarce.

To the so-called “desert ship” there is no shortage of acute hearing, smell and sight, so much so that even underground waterways can be identified.







Barn owl



This beautiful bird fascinates me for its white appearance, in fact I titled it white ghost.

The barn owl also in popular beliefs, since ancient times, is considered and represented as an evil being, or a ghost, bearer of misfortune and malaise.

This is due to its fundamentally clear plumage, which stands out at night in its completely silent flights, the habit of hunting in places like cemeteries (given the abundance of mice) and its sharp and prolonged sound.

His look so pale fascinates me a lot, and their flight is particular and unique, that of the barn owl is in fact known to be the most silent flight among all known birds.
