Mara, Masai Mara, Kenya

Mara, 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 back from the edition of 9.  Arno Elias’ I’m Not a Trophy campaign aims to raise awareness of the horrible hunting of African animals and their significant decline in numbers.

Lions are fearless apex predators emblematic of strength and power. Renowned for majesty and king of the jungle, the lion is chief predator in it’s ecosystem. The lion’s iconic existence plays a key role in the food chain accounting for 85% of the predation of herbivores. Lions maintain healthy herds and control population by spotlighting on the weakest herd animals. Loss of these magically romantic beasts would cause a tragic cascade of ecological impact.

The adult male lion is the most enshrined trophy kill fetching a price tag up to $50,000. Trophy-seekers pay an exorbitant amount of money for bragging rights and a head to hang on the wall. After the lion is slain, the hunter is photographed with the animal cleaned up, blood scrubbed away and wounds thoughtfully hidden from view. The lion will often appear alive as if the hunter tamed this wild beast into submission.
