Enjoy your very own print of the original Gauancos Painting. Great for all sorts of rooms!
Guanacos are the wild ancestor of the Llama and the distant relative of the camel. They are an incredibly important part of the ecosystem in Patagonia. In the late 19th century sheep were introduced and the Guanacos had to compete for forage and water. The sheep introduced new diseases and the sheep owners would hunt Guanacos to make room for their sheep. Today, most guanacos are found in small populations that no longer migrate, relegated to the driest lands not suitable for livestock. They are currently threatened.
A % of this sale goes to the organizations helping them to protect the Guanaco.
