'Black Sphinx' by Carl Brenders
Carl's own words on this fabulous painting:-
I thought “Black Sphinx” would be an appropriate title, because this black leopard
reminded me so much of the Egyptian statue. In modern times, a sphinx still
symbolizes someone who is difficult to see through, a mysterious person. Because
of their dark coloring, black leopards look very mysterious indeed. They live in
dark rainforests, where they are almost invisible. The black leopard is only a
melanistic form of the leopard, most commonly found in India, Java and Malaysia.
Leopards on the African continent are mostly orange-yellow with dark spots, a
perfect camouflage in the more open savannah habitat. Only the Ethiopian
highlands have a population of African Black leopards.
