The sight of a tiny hippo perched on the top of a man's head, taking it easy and relaxing, draws attention to the intricate connection between humans and wildlife. Despite our differences, we share a common home and ecosystem, and our actions can impact the natural world in profound ways. The laid-back demeanor of the hippo is a reminder of the importance of taking time to slow down and appreciate the beauty and richness of our surroundings. By acknowledging our relationship with the animal kingdom and respecting their unique perspectives and behaviors, we can strive to create a more sustainable and harmonious future for both humans and wildlife. This imagery evokes a sense of our shared responsibility to care for and protect the planet and its inhabitants. With compassion and empathy, we can deepen our bond with the natural world and work towards a more hopeful future for all.

Museum Grade Paper
Canson Edition Etching Rag is a 100% cotton Fine Art paper with a smooth texture, reminiscent of the original genuine etching and printmaking papers.

Canson Edition Etching Rag offers a high paper shade stability and a resistance to ageing by using natural minerals.
This museum-grade paper provides deep blacks, excellent image sharpness, optimum colour graduation and its unique slight grain makes it ideal for printing detailed work, colour photographs and exceptional black and white portraits.
Caring For Your Artwork
Your new print is very delicate. Please keep your print protected until it is framed to avoid damage. Gillie and Marc can frame your print, however if you have opted to receive your print in a tube, we recommend this to be opened by a professional framer as it is fragile and difficult to re-roll. Regardless of whether your print is framed, we always suggest to keep out of direct sunlight.
