Duma Duet, Masai Mara, Kenya

Duma Duet, 2017 by Arno Elias is an Archival pigment print hand embellished with paint, gold and silver leaf, and diamond dust.  It is signed, dated, and numbered on the front from the edition of 17.  Arno Elias’ I’m Not a Trophy campaign aims to raise awareness of the malicious hunting of African animals and their significant decline in numbers.

A marvel of evolution. Cheetah’s are the fastest land animal with accelerations of 70 mph that leave automobiles in the dust. As a popular wildlife keystone predator, the cheetah is incredibly important to its habitat and savanna ecosystem. Grazers such as zebras and wildebeest will become overpopulated which leads to overgrazing of the grasslands. Overgrazing can lead to erosion that can allow shrub growth to take over once lush grasslands. Without grass cover, other important species of the savanna ecosystem can become threatened or extinct. Cheetah’s are prized for their pelts and claws. Illegal cheetah trade for luxury pets is pushing the species to extinction. The fetching price for a cheetah trophy kill is $5,000.
