My artwork depicts two siblings who are currently living at the Octagon Wildlife Sanctuary in Punta Gorda, Florida. Their mother was a tiger and their father was a Lion, making these beautiful animals Ligers. Named Achilles and Aphrodite, these two love their pool and will “chuff” at each other. Like a lion, they can even roar and Aphrodite loves to boss her brother around. This depiction of these two reminds me that family and friends mean everything and no matter what is going on in the world we are in it together.
These ligers came to the Non-Profit Octagon Wildlife Sanctuary in 2017 as cubs due to overcrowding at the facility where they lived. This artwork is dedicated to the volunteers who care for all of the animals who live at the sanctuary every single day.
