Life Size Animals Take Over Westminster

They've taken 10 years to create and now several giant animal paintings will be unveiled. It's part of a new campaign to raise awareness of the threats faced by wildlife. 

Acclaimed wildlife artist Omra Sian spent 10 years crafting these astonishing pieces, some of which stand over five metres tall! Keen to recreate the breathtaking scale of animals such as the African Bull Elephant, and Rothschild Giraffe, he spent many years in the field, studying wildlife first-hand.

He said: "The event will inspire, educate and inform visitors – young and old - about the world we live in; the creatures and habitats we share it with and why they are so important to conserve."

'This is Our World' will be open free of charge to the public from the 4th to the 25th August 2017, Monday - Sunday 10am - 8pm at The Royal Horticultural Halls in Westminster.
