A vibrant print by an American contemporary artist who is best known for his Neo-Expressionist works and his renderings of stunning tropical birds.

This composition features a mesmerizing ensemble flora and fauna including a goose or duck in profile, a tiger, the spotted coat of a leopard, a horned ram, various tropical flowers, as well as an Egyptian mask.
