Let’s get one thing straight - wild animals belong in the wild. Humans should be stewards and not masters of the environment. Thus, our second collaboration with renowned wildlife artist and conservationist, Gary Hodges, sees us partner with the Born Free Foundation - an exceptionally mighty organisation working on the frontline to protect vulnerable animals.
Like THTC, Born Free is big enough to make a difference and small enough to care. The organisation helps both individual animals trapped in misery, as well as supporting welfare and conservation programs, and lobbying Government for greater protections of animals in their natural environment.
Gary brings one of his most renowned creations, ‘Boy & Christian’, to a graphite-screen design, printed on organic cotton, ethically and sustainably produced by THTC. These are two famous and very individual lions Gary drew especially as a commission for the actress, Virginia McKenna. Boy starred in the iconic film, 'Born Free' and Christian is the recent youtube sensation. Christian was rescued by Bill Travers and taken out to Kenya for renowned conservationist, George Adamson, to reintroduce in the wild. Both were two of George's favourite lions.
