Subject: Black-faced Lion Tamarin Dimensions (inches): 20 x 28 Description: The Black-faced Lion Tamarin is critically endangered, with only about 300 individuals surviving in the wild. This piece was commissioned by the husband of the director of the National Park of Superagüi in Guaraqueçaba Bay on the southeastern coast of Brazil, where an estimated 200 of the 300 live. These beautiful creatures are smaller than a squirrel, and I spent 2 days trekking in the area of Superagüi before I was rewarded by the appearance of a family of seven. A donation of 20% of the proceeds of the sale of this artwork has been made to Mater Natura - Instituto de Estudos Ambientais, the oldest conservation organization in Curitiba, Paraná, Brazil.
