Apex of Grace
The Leopard - Saving Grace
The Apex of Grace
I am constantly in awe of natural beauty.
Whenever I'm in the wild I feel deep gratitude.
There are so many reasons to thank mother nature, but few are as stunningly graceful as Leopards.
To watch them leap through the trees,
feel their focus and poise,
an incalculable gift.
Such an incredibly beautiful being.
With power and elegance they guard Earth's great forests. Whenever I watch them
I feel grace and peace.
Beauty is powerful.
Nature needs balance
A natural balance governs life on this planet. When we are in balance we have more strength and peace within.
Each being on Earth has its own way of balance. When we're balanced with each other the whole planet is well.
The natural world is a part of us all. When we separate from nature human beings become sick. For good health
and true peace we should
connect back to nature.
Whether beings like this leopard or the lakes and the trees, whenever
I'm in nature I feel divinity.
Nature can heal us all
I have watched adult leopards carry Zebra through trees. Zebra can weigh up to 800Ibs, while Leopard's are rarely even a quarter as heavy. Somehow they still manage to carry Zebra with ease. To do something like that takes incredible power.
The Leopard in this photograph was particularly powerful. Before taking this shot I he jumped over 30 feet vertically.
"When you see a 50Kg Leopard drag a 60Kg Antelope up a tree in its mouth, you realise how strong that animal is.
A Lion could not do the equivalent".
- Kevin Richardson, The Lion Whisperer
When not hunting from ground Leopards hunt from the trees, waiting patiently above for hours to catch prey beneath.
Leopards have great patience.
I have seen them watching a pride of Lions as they hunted, waiting patiently and observing until they
scattered the herd.
Once the Lions had separated and tired the other animals the Leopard moved in on their own easy meal.
When Leopard's choose to be they are ferociously powerful and incredibly effective.
To know when to act
we have to have patience.
Leopards must sometimes fight off much bigger animals. One such incident was a Leopard fighting against four female Lions in Africa. With such a large size and difference and heavily outnumbered you would not expect the Leopard to survive, but it injured the Lions and left
There is another documented case where a single Leopard defended itself against a whole pride of Lions, including two males.
This is amazing.
Very few animals have the courage, power and skill to successfully fend off a
whole pride of Lions.
Leopard's embody the spirit of courage.

These beings are coming dangerously close to extinction. The Amur Leopard now has less than 100 individuals living wild.
Unless we act soon, we will lose
All of my artwork aims to reflect truth and beauty, whether inside of each other or the magnificence of creation.
Human ignorance and indifference is causing so many problems.
Through destruction of habitat, hunting, deforestation and pollution we are now facing the loss of many species forever.
It is time we wake up.
It is time to save Earth.
Leopards have never been more in danger of extinction.
It can be hard to see why such powerful beings need our help,
but to survive this destruction they really do. Now.
We are losing animal habitats and the clean water
all life depends on. The selfish corporate system keeps destroying the natural world. By not standing up to this we condone a great evil. This is a call for all those who will stand up.
Why are so many allowing the destruction our home
and the home of all life on Earth?
If we stand up together,
We'll change it.
Human indifference to industrial negligence is allowing continual ecological destruction. Big industry and corporate greed are destroying natural ecosystems upon which all life depends.
Because of all this, the majority of species are now in decline.
How can we allow this.
The media continually distracted the public from such issues.
They do much more harm by propagating fear.
The images you will see in this article are from the most significant
public uprising in recent British history, yet nothing like this was
shown in mass media.
Ask yourself why.
To hide a movement like this is a choice that they made.
As you will see from the images, we did not hide ourselves.
We chose the most public places,
In the capitol of the state,
Yet you were shown nothing like this.
Never in history has mankind been so destructive.
Tribal people and communities would never
allow such widespread destruction.
I created this art to inform and inspire others.
By sharing with friends you help inform the world too.
We must not let destruction become normal.
We can change this
The power to change always comes from within.
A Great Awakening
You Warriors of Peace
There are a lot of people on Earth who care deeply for nature,
but so few are aware of our urgent need to protect it.
This suits corporates, government and industry just fine.
Many of those entities are aggressively
destroying the planet for financial gain.
Corporations are just legal constructs of the human imagination, yet they are given the rights of real people and allowed to own land - even though none is accountable in the way a human being is. Despite this, corporations now own more resources and property than most nations, and now operate at such scale
as to threaten an entire planet's ecosystem.
We need a free place
Since corporations, governments and big businesses are just constructs of the human imagination, why do we let them control what we do? Why are the world's resources being used to destroy natural habitats for profit?
These imaginary structures allow immoral people to destroy a whole planet and make financial gain. This is totally wrong.
They are doing this because they control the system.
We should change that.
Centralisation of resources through broken and redundant systems has allowed corporate greed to threaten the whole natural world.
Corporate structures control mass media and heavily dictate the information most now receive. These same structures derive power from unsustainable practices by creating demand and promoting consumerist behaviour through the media they own and influence.
This system depends upon public ignorance and person dissatisfaction.
A handful of companies control most used technology and social media so that we are approaching the day a virtual technocracy becomes reality.
(These platforms are now massively censoring information).
Though many are aware of the issue and work hard to reach others, we are now losing the ability to reach public consciousness.
In the modern world those who control media control consciousness.
Mass control of media is now the greatest threat to human freedom.
As we heal nature
The beast that is the unsustainable economy is so destructive now that it is threatening all life on Earth. If we continue propagating this system much longer it will cause a planet wide ecological collapse. We are already seeing a collapse of many ecosystems, but mass media does not reveal it. It is our responsibility as human beings to make others aware of the situation and then work together to change our course.
We need to change this world.
This is our duty to each other, ourselves, the children and nature.
You will often see Leopards near to Lions in the wild, watching them hunt and even joining in. Lions seem to respect the Leopard were they would not tolerate other competitive predators (like wild dogs or Hyena's).
It is beautiful when I see this respect between them.
If we combined resources we could easily change this.
Before that can happen we need to help others wake up.
To awaken and inspire humanity is the main reason I create art.
Those who care can change the world.
If we work together,
We can change.
