Podenco San Carlos 2020 Acrylic paper on Canvas 81x116 cm -available
The dog is drawn with pencil on watercolor paper and standing on the 18th century church of San Carlos de Peralta in Ibiza.
The Phoenicians brought the breed of the Podenco Ibicenco to the Balearic Islands (located off the coast of Spain), during the 8th and 9th centuries B.C. They remained there, unspoiled for two thousand years.Drawings of these ancient hounds, so strikingly similar to the Ibizan, have been found in hieroglyphs and in the tombs of pharohs dating back to 3100 B.C. (including Ptolemy and Nefermat (2650 B.C.), Mereku and Tutankhamon). Even the head of Anubis resembles that of the Ibizan. They were bred as “rabbit dogs” with farmers only keeping the keenest and strongest hunters to help feed the farmer’s families.
Ibizan Hounds can hunt on many different types of terrain using scent, sound, and sight to track game. Hunters run the dogs in mostly female packs because the female is considered to be the better hunter.Ibizan Hounds are an intelligent, active, and sensitive breed. They’re generally quiet but are alert so they’ll bark if something seems wrong. Ibizan Hounds are reliable watchdogs having strong instincts to protect their family.
Ancient Socotra Camel 2019 Mixed Media on canvas and wooden panel 120 x 150 cm - Al Dhafra Camel Club
This work I created in my art residency in Abu Dhabi Al Dhafra Camel Festival. It is made out of a recycled wooden panel from Abu Dhabi, sand from the desert in Liwa, a woolen scarf made by lovely women from Socotra, who had their handcraft stand next to us, and wooden pieces for incenses from the Boswellia tree in Socotra, Yemen, are inserted in the art work. The camel is in peace with its self surrounded by the warm sun, the light orange desert sand and the sea of the amazing island Socotra.Cave Arabic ancient drawings, like the petroglyphs found in Eriosh in Socotra of camels decorate the wooden body of the camel.

The correlation is that bold black and white stripes cool zebras by creating convection currents in the air around the animals' bodies. That is, air moves faster over sunlight-absorbing black stripes and slower over white stripes to create cooling airflow, a zebra air condition and at the same time a camouflage.

Move on Calmly United
Appreciated for its grace the gazelle is a symbol most commonly associated in Arabic literature with female beauty. My gazelle is carrying three women of three continents, Africa, Europe, Middle East, which are comfortably united on a sofa.Three heads, touch each other interchanging ideas, emotion and friendship. The union allows to push forward projects with the light speedy dancing rhythm of the gazelle, Flowing clearly like the water.
By Rainer Maria Rilke
Enchanted one: how can the harmony of two
Latin words ever attain the rhythm
that ripples through you like a promise.
From your brow rise leaf and lyre.
And all that is you turns to metaphor
in love poems whose phrases light
as rose petals remain in the expression
of one who, after reading, closes her eyes
to see you: almost in flight,
borne away in leaps that cease their springing
only when you stand stock still to listen;
as when a woman bathing in a woodland stream
pauses suddenly, and the water
mirrors her quick-turned face.
