Two Brothers – Ancient Rites, Original Oil Painting on Linen Canvas.
BAS was honoured to be associated with the Pathe´/Universal movie Two Brothers, which was partly aimed at raising awareness of the tiger’s plight. The movie was directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud and produced by Jake Eberts, whose films won 37 Oscars.
Two tiger cubs begin their foray within the ruins of an ancient temple. The more adventurous of the brothers has his attention aroused by a resting butterfly. The other more passive brother prefers to observe matters from afar while his sibling leads the way.
The painting also depicts an ornate figure from Ta Phrom Temple, Angkor Wat, Cambodia. The Temple was built around 900 AD by the Kmer Kingdom, later to be reclaimed by the encompassing jungle.
