John Dyer Painting. Twilight Orangutans, Borneo

"The beguiling orangutans in Borneo make a fresh nest for themselves each night so they can sleep safely under the stars in the rainforest canopy. Living with the orangutans in the forests of Borneo was a remarkable and emotional experience and in many ways, this painting captures the essence of their very human-like, gentle and fragile existence." John Dyer
